This is also only my 2nd bike I've owned, and the first I've ridden on the street, so I have a lot of learn still.
I salute you falcon! this thing kicked my ass all over the Arizona dessert and I'm close at 140ish hence the super moto future (btw seeing the ex marine tag I'm sure your muscle mass is a bit more then my scrawny asses)

A trick some of the guys over at TT were doing is draining the stock fork fluid and replacing it with Type F ATF (no friction modifiers like normal ATF) or 10wt jack oil to help with the front end dive issue.

My solution came via a 2000 cr250 and I'm with ya on still needing to learn allot
lots of dismantled parts to a 2007 XR650L
