Does anyone know if this can be done in any way on the newer Ultegra 8070 or Dura Ace 9170 hydraulic Di2 shifters? As I understand it, they don't have the dedicated sprint shifter port but they do have a free normal port.
Since there are not dedicated sprint shifter ports, there is no way to effect the sprint shifter mod for the ST-R8070/R9170 shifters. What I did for our ST-R9170 equipped bikes was to add a set of Shimano SW-R9150 satellite shifters but this is a more pricey option as these satellite shifters can be used as standalone shifters, say for a single-speed hydro disc brake project.

@ ST-R8070/R9170:
But what about hacking climbing shifter SW-R600 (like here)? Climbing shifter will work in normal port.

I ended up taking it upon myself to deconstruct a climbing shifter to make a set of low profile satellite shifters. Details can be found here:

Now that time has passed how did you like the membrane switches on the top tube? How did you make the connection from the e-tube leads to the membrane switch?
