Went to start my bike and turned it over with electric starter for a good 30-40 finally started but smoke came up from the power on button near the speedometer...what is that from? 06 WR450

After this I'll kick start if electric start doesn't do the trick in 15 seconds.....Anyone seen smoke?

From the "speedo on" button or "Main switch" button right next to the speedometer.

No I have never seen smoke. i did accidentally pull the wires out of the starter button with a tie down recently.
