Can you hear the fuel pump running when you turn the ignition on? Was wondering if the leads to the pump may have come loose, but not sure if the bike would still crank if those leads are not connected.

i have the koubalink 1 5/8 " on my bike and while it's fine on 17" street rims, it does touch the gas tank on some occasions with the offroadwheel with knobbies. (tiny jumps and bumps...i'm a noob, i don't do big jumps yet)

That's where I would start.
agree - the clicking sound will likely be the starter solenoid crying out for more power. removing the fuse to the lights can sometimes give you enough extra juice to get started but I'd say your battery is flat or deaded

The neoprene washers? They are in the pic at the base of the metal spacer.
I just went to home depot and found some that fit.
Not sure if I answered your question...?

My Neutral light stopped working - not burned out - it still lights as part of the start sequence, just doesn't show that the bike is in neutral. No recent physical damage - it just worked one day, then not the next. Wiring diagram is not too helpful - just shows 3 wire lead to a 3 position switch.
Anyone have a suggestion on where to start/what to look for?
Not a big deal, but I would prefer that it worked.
Thanks in advance.

Oh, 2011 690 Enduro.
Well, so far, the switch/sensor appears to work - I see a completed circuit from the green wire (I think that's the neutral) to ground with the bike in neutral. So that leads me upstream. I'll try to check the wiring above the connector.
What would the ECU effect be if the fault was there. The bike is running fine - just rode 1000k.

Anybody have this apart? Anybody?

"Discovered" another thing for the tent issue. I bought a compression sack at MEC - squeezes the tent to half the size. it now fits easily into the GL Great Basin, leaving the duffel for other stuff.

Yeah. Just wondering what the washers look like "un-installed".

Is there any space on the bike where you guys keep the little tool pouch that came with the bike? Thanks.

I keep mine on my dresser for loose change. Get a tool roll. You will need to add a few tools for a solid tool kit for the 690.
