Default Check Engine light not coming on at ignition

Hope this is an easy one. I just bought my 1st harley in years, a 2012 Dyna Wide glide with security system. when the bike is on the side stand and I turn on the ignition switch, the check engine light comes on as it is supposed to, however when I am on the bike and it is upright with the red security light on and I turn on the ignition switch, sometimes, the check engine light does not come on at all or comes on for 1-2 seconds. Is this normal?

not sure if im reading you right but the check engine light comes on until the
fuel pump builds pressure then goes out.
you should always wait until the light goes out before cranking if the bike is stock.

The problem is that there are times when the light does not come on with my stock bike. It is only when I have raised the bike off the kickstand and the red security light is lit. If I turn on the ignition with the bike on the kickstand, it lights up every time. Is this a result of the security system? Anyone else with the security system notice this or be willing to sit on your bike, then turn the ignition on while the red security light is lit and see if the check light still lights up?

I don't have the security system but I would assume it has to do with the anti-theft. From what I have read these systems are motion activated.

Mine seemed like it didn't do that before. Just had new Stator put in and mine does that now. They come on, start, go off for a second, key then Engine light come on for a few seconds and they go away. No security system.
Runs fine now.
