Dual throttle Rotax 912ULS

I have a dual throttle setup on my 701 with a Rotax 912ULS This is the kit that zenith provides with two cables. There seems to be a lot of pressure pulling the two throttle arms on the carbs back to full. If I take my hand off the throttle it will advance the RPM greatly.

rubber seal for front of canopy

I am looking for a larger rubber seal for the front of my canopy.  Trim Lock DD1201 has been suggested, but a 25 foot piece sells for $80.   I was wondering if someone had a leftover 8 foot piece that they would be willing to sell.
