The #68840 cups are designed to accept 2mm pins. The older HB DCJ's had larger 2.4mm pins. The newer #68823 DCJ's have a smaller 2mm pin. You could use #68769 steel long cups that were released for the TCX. These cups have a larger slot. They are available in a #68770 POM version as well.

Since the DCJ's aren't cheap. I run a locked gear diff or a putty gear diff in the front so I can use blades to help keep drivetrain wear to a minimum and keep things as smooth as possible longer.
