shimano dura ace 9 speed bar end shifters copatability issues

I have a 10 year old road bike that the previous owner changed into a tri bike. They installed 9 speed dura ace bar end shifters and I can't get it to index on all 9 gears. I get 8 usually but it skips one in the middle. The shifter says compatible with RD7700, but the bike has Ultegra rear derailleur # RD6500. Would it work with a RD7700? I'm afraid to drop that kind of coin if it still is going to give me issues. I've had trouble in the past with the 9 speed bar ends. Any hints, tips or tricks? Is there a bar end that is available with the RD6500? Thanks for your help. Al.
