hey hydro
as albert says (karfrik) they come in many sizes and colours, cut the old shrink off and put the new shrink on, for large shrink i use my electric cooker/stove, for small shrink i use my lighter, i use clear all round because you can see if moisture gets in then i use hot melt glue to waterproof

the sizes i most commonly us are

6mm - for bullets and insulating soldered wires
20mm for when i add a capicitor
40mm- for re-wrapping esc's
