is my speedometer/tachometer acting normal

I just bought this 2008 prowler 650 xt . so when I turn the key on the speedo/ tach makes a winding noise the needle tries to run back wards for a couple of seconds when it works fine.....It also doesn't want to start sometimes, the battery seams to be dead, the battery is brand new, but if you leave it for a couple of seconds it starts up...I am going to get the valves adjusted, and if this doesn"t help I will get a new starter....is the starting problem related to my speedo.....any ideas....thanks kootenay

The spedo is normal and is functioning properly. It is allowing your prowlers electronics and fuel system to "power up". Wait for this to cylcle before starting. I believe the owners manual or service manual may address this. No worries, not related to battery issue.

Good news, make sure your ground cable to the belt case is tight too.

Take care
