Stupid tach question - 2005 950 ADV

Had a problem starting yesterday. It turned out to be the typical ignition switch corrosion issue. After I fixed that, I noticed that when I turn the key, the instrument panel lights up but the tach does not cycle through one full sweep. I thought it used to do that. Maybe I'm thinking of an older Suzuki. Dunno. What does yours do? If it's supposed to cycle through and doesn't, should I worry?

Only the EFI bikes do that.

Isn't there an app for that?
