yes. ive dont that before on my trv. left the cover off by accident, and went over seat deep. did all kinds of strange stuff. replaced them all, a fixed it. i opened a couple and they were all wet and corroded inside.

when you get your new ones, di electric greese around the cover and the bottom of the fuse box where the wires come in. keeps the water out.

not really. its a good idea to di electric greese all connections. not really needed, but recomended. also, the vent for the gas tank needs to be higher. i ran mine through the under hood storage, and drilled a hole in the firewall to put the vent line in. so its behind the dash, and keeps water out of the fuel. my factory vent ran along the frame and was tucked in the frame rail on the right side behind the headlight.

di electric grease is your best friend on these units.. pull all your electrical connections and grease them and grease your spark plug boot as well.. its great stuff for snorkeled bikes, I go over mine every season and re apply when needed. It will save you a lot of headaches.
