No. The safety switch is for you. The compression is for Dylan. Please re read.
Just check for spark at both places.
You should also never replace anything until you first found your problem, regardless if it was already "on the list".
Keep us posted as we can only go by what you've written and since we can't actually check your bike out ourselves, that's all we can go by. What I've given is a place to start, but might not be the problem.

PS it's not a California bike is it? Canada doesn't have pollution controls on bikes yet?

oh Ok, oops. )
IF there is no spark at the LED and it does not flash.
I will start the checking.
I had the Ignition Module, BAS?, and fuel tank vacuum on my list.
ANY and all information helps me.
And no it is not a California bike. The Serial Number is a 5MZ designed for outside the US. And letter L in it for Canada. Good call though,
I will keep posting.

That is a good start. Let us know if there is no flash at the LED, then we'll go from there. I'm guessing there is. Then check for spark at the plug (or at a spare plug-you don't actually have to pull the spark plug-just use an extra known good plug).
I'm betting it's a safety switch.

Update, After a few days away from home.
I tried starting the bike, and it started, as it does. First try.
No problem. It idled longer than the usual 30 seconds.
And sounded fantastic, smooth, consistent till about 45 or 50 seconds then it stopped. Tried again and got the same
tick tick and nothing.
I tried turning the middle Diode Fuse around to disengage the safety. I think thats right. But it did not slot in when turned around. The left side would not push down?
So I stopped.
I passed by the HD dealer here to see if they had a CO145.T
switch. But none in Canada. $ 13 online. If that were the issue.
That is all I can do for today this beautiful bike...

It won't slot - that is what dis-engages the safety - lol - twist kick stand wires together, and dis-able bas - all howto's in trouble shooting headlines. Could also be a stuck float.

Oh ok :-). Will try those.
When I re jetted. There was gas in the carb and the float
'floated' as it were... Clean, as could be in the carb and the stock jet #42, still looked new. Replaced for #45.
'Trouble shooting headlines' is that in the knowledge part.
Again, thanks. I've read some of your stuff ez much appreciated....
