Thank you, Bobbed. Shedding 9 pounds from the bike feels great! It seems to me that removing 10+ pounds from the bike's left hip even makes the pig easier to lift from the kick stand. In tight quarters the slimmer pig is definitely easier to push around. I agree; the XR650L looks much leaner, and much better without the battery "goiter" hanging off its left side.

I think you are correct; some grease and a balloon would work just fine to weatherize the fuse box. However, I believe Cumbacheech researched the best solution!
