Maybe you should try some checks

Battery voltage, R/R voltage output, battery connections...

I'm holding it in. Here's another vid. Is the pump/primer sound kinda off, or is it just me?

I would check your battery connections and voltage, it looks like too much current draw for the battery.

The battery seems ok. It's stable on 12.3V and drops very little after repeated tries. Also, isn't it hard to see how this would change from one day to the next?

As others have suggested,,,, I think your issue is voltage. A fully charged battery at rest should be 12.6-12.8 volts. I think in that vid I can hear the starter relay clicking after each attempt. Fuel pump would have nothing to do with the engine spinning over. Initially I was leaning toward hydrolock because I didn't realize you were keeping the button depressed.

What is the light I see flashing near the handlebar clamp?

I'll try to charge the battery over-night and see what happens. I guess I was too unpatient the last try.

The blinking light is the heated grips control.

Turn the grips off. And anything else that pulls power besides the engine.

Check the battery voltage under load. Put the volt meter leads across the battery terminals and then hit the starter and note the voltage drop.

Correct,,,, also it would be better to use an analog meter rather than digital. The numbers change so fast on a digital that its sometimes hard to get a reading. Unless you have a DMM that has a hold feature.
