If bare wires are exposed insulation tape is not very good at repelling water and damp - a good auto-spark should be able to apply good insulation - the heat shrink stuff is very good. It is possible a few sections of the cable may need replaced and good soldering skills go a long way in making a permanent repair.
The last thing you need is for the engine to cut out at an important time like coming out of a junction or overtaking
