Is it not doing that to confirm the bulb works?

The common fix is to unscrew the bulb. The indicator is, if fully functioning, useless anyways. Just orient yourself on the Km Clock.
My SB6 is good for >160km.

It's supposed to do that. It runs the fuel pump for the same couple of seconds.

Sorry for late response, been away for a while.

my SB6R had a vacuum fuel pump (which I have since removed).
