Do not use the spray I have used wrap on several bikes with the spray and without and the spray gives it a little more durability for road use,But it does not work well for the offroad use it makes the wrap brittle and the pounding it gets from debris kicked up from the frt wheel will eat it up much quicker than with out the spray. If you have a heat shield that covers it in that area where the pipe bends you would probably be ok but without it, the wrap will fail quickly. just make sure when you are done washing the bike you ride it a bit and get the ppe hot as to dry the wrap before any storage. I too use the safety wire rather than those expensive stainless zip ties that do not hold anything tight(there junk).
