When I change my volume the indicator takes a little while to appear. The sound is instant though. If I change volume very soon after I just did then it will reappear instantly, otherwise it takes a while. Same thing happens with the other indicators (brightness & kboard brightness). The old indicator would always appear instantly.

It's instantaneous for me. Have you restarted since you installed Yosemite? Some post-install maintenance could be slowing it down.

No I've had this ever since beta 1 and I have had plenty of restarts since.

I think the problem may be that the new indicator is graphic-intensive, so it takes a while to initialize or whatever the graphics card to load it... or whatever

You probably have a powerful Mac so it appears instant

mine takes forever too and the "tick tick tick" noise it would make as it went up and down is gone as well.
