Rifleman 1/5 throttle insert questions

1: Anyone know how to get in touch with this guy? You go on the website (doublezracing.com) and try to click "contact" and it doesn't work.

2: I know he makes an insert for the '08-'09 ZX10R...I assume that should be the same for my '09 ZX6R?

3: Has anyone had issues with the throttle cable adjustment after cutting the lock rings off? As in, does it lose it's adjustment often w/o the lock rings?

I've tried that zip tie mod thing about 3x's and each time I can't get the epoxy to bond to whatever the hell the stock plastic throttle insert thing is made of. I gave up on it! If I'm so inclined I'll either attempt the pvc route or just break down and get the rifleman one.

Yeah, I've tried a few different adhesives with no luck either

I've never had any issues with the Rifleman insert on my 10.

I had to cut about 1/4" of threads off one adjuster, and had to dremel out a little bit of metal on the inside of the cable housing.

i used super glue and it seemed to work fine still on. once you put the cable around it holds it in place.
