The green material is the tank liner. It peels off the plugs the pickup. Strip as much out as you can and button it back up. The liner is not necessary and its service life on your bike is past.

You might also check your shifter linkage to be sure it is in good order. Mine was about to fall off and I experienced that as well.

You need to do a reset. You need to ground out the ABS through the diagnostic port. It is super easy and it should reset the pump. If not, maybe the pump is in need of a rebuild. I had mine done by...

I get my grips from Ted Porter's Beemer Shop. They are identical to the originals, fit right, and are cheap. I use a cramp buster for throttle. $5 is a good deal.

I concur with the EBC suggestions. EBC FA185R from a Suzuki DR650 front brake are direct replacements for your rear brake thus allowing the purchase of pads locally without a wait.

Are you bleeding the rear at the ABS pump as well? I usually start there, go to the caliper, then finish at the pump. Sometimes I do a final bleed at the caliper. It should end up rock solid.
