I have no idea if anyone sells those, but they are very easy to make yourself.

Make the springs. Find the diameter you want with styrene, then take thin wire and wrap around the styrene, then just pull the wire off the styrene. This also alows your to control the length much easier as well. Same thing for making the very very small throttle return springs.

Try using the small springs from used up Bic lighters.

The largest size of guitar strings makes pretty good corrugated hoses. Seen it, never done it.
