The bare wire is a shielding wire. Things that pulse, i.e. these wires and the electro magnets on top of the injectors, put off a magnetic wave. At certain pulse frequencies these magnetic waves will actually imply a voltage to surrounding things. The bare wire shields these implied voltages by accepting the voltage and directing them away from the rest of the wires so you don't have hijacking signals going through your system. Same reason your stereo antenna wire and the other parts of that system have these bare wires so that you don't hear the static caused by the engine.
Do what you have to do to fix those melted wires. Shielding wire be damned
