Default XCT - key "on" . . .

Is it just my imagination, or does the tach cycle through the numbers for a second or two and zero out again when the ignition is switched on? For some reason I thought it did, and thought I had confirmed that in the owners manual someplace. Yesterday I noticed the tach (?) does not do the "test" upon switching on the key. I looked through the owners manual, but didn't find any notes in the book on instruments. Does it, or does it not? If it normally does, but no longer does, is it a matter to be concerned with? sheets

No comment one way or the other? I guess it is just my imagination.

Well, being a very long way from my bike at the moment, I can't check for you. I don't remember ever seeing the tach go through a self check but really never paid attention since turning the key, turning the kill switch, waiting for the fuel pump, et al have my attention.
Give it some time, there will be folks who know the answer or will check out their ride to give an update.

Cheers

I'm sure someone will check....when they get out of work.
Someone needs an excuse to go see their bike on a rainy day

well Sheets.. I tried this on my XCT when I went home for lunch. I turn the key and my tach needle moved a VERY LITTLE bit and that's it. What do you mean your tach cycled through the numbers ?

Mine doesn't do a gauge sweep, it drops down very little and then zeros itself.
