Shimano SLR brake lever hoods

I have a set of Super SLR hoods. Are these compatible with all SLR levers. If not, any idea what levers these fit.

Thanks!

They're not compatible with Dura Ace levers, but I've used them with older 105 and 600 levers. They're actually replacements for Shimano BL-R400 and BL-R600 levers that are still produced.

Does anyone know where to get tan replacement hoods for Shimano 105/600 aero brakes?

Tan? No. The current replacements are black only and I think you can find some NOS hoods in white on eBay.
