Angry Steel Throttle and kill anyone?

Gee, my twist grip outer assembly has cracked. How'd I know THAT would happen?

But stupid ol me spent the last couple of months seeing a steel Kill switch throttle assembly on some site here- but that's now apparently sold out.

Spooky has an "old style" but doesn't say if it's got a kill switch, and has anyone noticed their pictures NEVER really enlarge? The old style cable is $10 more.

I can tell by the ads that these things are going belly up- suddenly they're selling the grips alone, and boygofast has 10 cables listed together now. He had cheap plastic replacements listed separately forever, and NOW THEY'RE GONE!!!!

I see what's happening- It's winter now, and the stupid cheap plastic things are all breaking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!

I've got an extra from the build I'm just now ready to assemble, so what do I do? Break another cheap plastic thing and/or order another cheap plastic thing, with the grips? I JUST ORDERED the grips separately a few weeks ago!!!!!! Another stupid move!!!!!!!

I even searched ebay for motorcycle twist grip, and see nothing but plastic and 1 inch-

anybody got a steel throttle and kill for sale?
