Bar End Shifters

Thought I'd post here as it will get more traffic than the triathlon forum.

I'm looking to switch away from my old 'grip shift' round twisty shifters on my aerobars--- Just want to go to bar end shifter levers. I don't want to spend too much getting my old (1997 Quintana Roo) tri bike back on the road but this one aspect was never comfortable. My question is that of compatibility: I have 8 speed Dura Ace.... I would like to keep the indexing for the rear. How specific do I need to get? Do I need to find 8 speed Dura Ace or with something else work as well?

Thanks in advance.
