when installing the leather wraps do they stretch much. It says to soak in water before installing. My wife got me some and they are about a half inch from closing completely. They are the Indian brand. Before I try to install i want to make sure they are the correct ones

I've installed a few sets before, and never soaked them. They stretch a bit and will close that gap as you tighten them.

Soaking them in water allows the leather to stretch easier. When it dries, it shrinks tighter around the grip.
