Shimano 600 brake hood

Anyone know if these ...

will work with older shimano 600ex bl6209 levers?. Lots of cheap new 6403 hoods around, not so for 6209. I can find hoods but most aren't in any better shape than the worn out ones I want to replace.

No, not if you want them to fit perfectly. Yes, if you want them to be "sort of close." They are not the same shape at the top of the lever, just above the pivot bolt. I have an equivalent set on my 6209 levers, but I probably would not do it again had I known that I was buying the 6400-series model.
