Instrument Cluster Dead 2009 690r Endro

My turn to deal with electrical gremlins. Put a new shock on my 2009 690r today and after I was done the instrument cluster was not working. Everything else works. Headlights, turn signals, bar controls all work. I am pretty sure I must have done something to a wire when I had to pivot the gas tank up to get the shock out. Bike starts and runs OK in the garage. Anybody else had this particular problem? Fuses are all ok. For awhile the cluster has a very dim back light in the instrument panel that came on and off in repeating intervals of eight with a slight pause then eight more. This kept going. Seems like that has stopped now. This was NOT the FI light as none for the idiot lights were working. Rather is was a dim backlight of the main instrument panel, but no appearance of any numbers. No wires behind the headlight shroud seem broken. I am guessing it is something in the large wiring bundle under the battery. I am going to trace back from fuse 1 unless I get some advice from the asylum here!
BTW I noticed that there is about 10 volts going across fuse 1 contacts with ignition off. With ignition on the voltage goes up to around 13.

I don't have a 690 enduro, but did come across this thread.
It's about the adventure model, but still might have something in it for you.

Thanks for the links. So far no wiring problems found. Ordered a new speedometer as the voltage leak at the fuse goes away when I unplug a lead to the speedo. Still may not be the speedo but I decided to spend the bucks before totally tearing all the wiring system apart.

Speedometer issue resolved!

Turned out to be a broken ground wire on the ground connection just in front of the upper right tank bolt. Caused by lifting the tank to install a new shock. A brown/purple wire. Another wire was almost broken too. There are four wires that are all crimped to one connector there. I soldered, waterproofed, and strengthened that connection. My bike is a 2009. Not sure if they have improved that connection on later models. They need to, as that is a problem waiting to happen in stock trim.
