I just installed a dura-ace FD on my son's bike with x-7 grip shifts. he shift effort on the front derailleur makes it pretty much useless. I'm a pretty decent with mechanical stuff. Have I missed something?

Don't you need a Spleen adapter to make that work? Check out Nino's posts in the weight weenie sub forum. He's an expert on DA+Mtn. bike parts.

His bike is already bottom pull.

If the Speen* adapter is only to convert bottom pull to top pull then it's not necessary. But if it give more leverage, that would be of interest.
