You got a freebee!
Did it stop the leak? There you go then.
If it's bothering you just take a knife to it and peel the excess off. Any bits that go inside will get caught in the screen.

Check your Starter relay for corrosion. Fiddle with the ignition switch to see if any change. Also the wiring loom at the headstock.

Being worse off-road sounds like a bad connection somewhere.

Nice repair job on your rad. I run a Lakemonster guard on my SE and elected to not fit the forward bolts to the oil tank. Makes a hell of a ringing noise which I don't like though.

Did you disconnect the battery whilst it was stored? If not it's probably just normal leak down. Get them to charge it. You should pack a spare VR in any case.
