Cable Wrap

Dear All, this weekend managed to get a closer look at my new found used Harley and most important, managed to do over 100km riding pleasure.

Am sorry if this topic has been discuss, if so, kindly point me to the right link.

Our 750 is full of "eye view" cables/connector here and there. what puzzled me was 2 usual + - wire wrap by one cable. and these cables are not tightly wrap on the +-, hence if one put the bike out in the rain, surely water will drip down inside the cable. I dunno if original came with it, but a lot of electrical tape around it and found some start to give way... thinking i am smarter, i used Gorilla Tape instead. Sad to know, after the 100km ride, the Gorilla tape start to give way... likely due to the heat.

Was looking at heat-shrink-tubing but am not so sure how reliable as we heat to shrink (80C/175F) and the engine/exhaust surrounding the cable with heat-shrink-tubing is going to get much hotter than that, if it will meltdown?

Care to share what tape/duct tape/epoxy or any idea to seal the connector/cable holes without worrying on the heat from the engine/exhaust.

Again, Thank You in advance.

I have put cable cover on mine. It comes in various thickness and is split length wise for an easy install. Also avoiding driving in the rain is even better. When I get caught in the rain I simply pull over and look for shelter.
