Notice this “Cuts easily with Hot Knife” – This is very important, because of the make up of these covers they do NOT, I repeat do NOT cut well with knifes or even razors. I’ve tried it only makes the cuts look like a total mess, on top of that it makes the ends fray. So to properly cut this you must use a hot knife or a soldering iron works very well also, which ever of the two you use make sure it’s been warmed up – the hotter the better.
The covers do expand, and expand perfectly over the fuel lines. Once installed on the fuel lines place the shrink wrap tubes on the line then install the lines to your tank, filter, pipe, carb and so on. Zip tie the lines on as normal the shrink wrap should NOT be used to hold the lines in tact. After you attach the zip ties move the shrink tubes over the ends of the covers and zip tie and use either a hot gun or hair dryer to make the shrink tubes shrink making a nice clean end.
