Is there any reason I should wait for the needles to cycle back and forth before starting the bike?

I'm not usually fast enough to mash the button before the cycle is over. Isn't there some purpose for the sequence the maker provides?

It is the bike going through self checks. I always give the bike at least 5 seconds after the self check to allow the fuel system pressure to come up to pressure and stabilize.

When turning on the ignition there's a noise that lasts 2-3 seconds that I've always assumed is the fuel pump priming itself. I generally wait until that stops.
