There is a tube used for electrical isolation, free translated : Shrinktube.
For this you have to open one end of the line to push the tube over.
So this will set the 'unused' (before heated and shrinked) diameter.
And the in the listings for purchase there is noted the rate of shrinking after heated with hot air blower or a Zippo.
Note: This tube shinks not in length, but diameter only.

Heat shrink tubing. You can get it in a huge variety of lengths and diameters. At any good electrical supply, Home Depot, Amazon, McMaster-Carr....
But you will have to remove the hose from the bike to install it.

I personally like the braided stainless steel lines. When I bought a Barnett clutch cable ( that you should or will Need to do anyway) I bought the braided stainless one. Now they all match too. Not black, but look good. Something Polaris /Indian should have done to begin with.IMO.

I sprayed spray paint in a container and used a small paint brush. Still looks good after 2 years.

Ok everyone...
Thanks for all the advice and feedback. I ended up moving forward with "thehueypilot" suggestion and it turned out great! super easy to install and cheap. Looks way better.
I highly recommend to anyone interested. Summit Racing Woven Fabric

Just a little thing to watch out for if you are using the black, tar coated wiring loom. If you accidentally spill gas on them they turn white.

I had a fuel leak on my CB750 bobber and found that out.
