All K1200 having "brick" engine use the same fuel-pump (K1200RS, K1200LT, K1200GT 2003-2005).
You can order an equivalent fuel-pump for less than the BMW pump here
BeemerBoneYard has been serving the BMW community for used and new replacement parts for many years - very good/honest people to make business with.
You can also buy used pump from EBAY, but this is a crapshoot as many of these parts bike have sit for a long time and unknown mileage in many cases.
BUT... before you order a pump, I would empty tank, inspect and measure continuity of wires outside and inside of tank (same wires that goes into pump). These pump are quite reliable and I have seen a few cases of damaged wires. If bike was unused for a long time with old gaz, then the pump will often die before its normal time. You could be lucky and only have a wire or connector problem. Worth looking into before ordering a pump. Will also tell you condition of 2 short fuel-hoses (into filter) before ordering anything else
If you work with tank still on bike, the tank has to be really empty. BUT if you work with tank removed and leaned a bit on the opposite side, you can still do the job with about 1/5 of the tank remaining.
If in fact you do need to order a pump from BeemerBoneyard, then order a new fuel filter and ask them to include 2 of these good screw-on clamp they include with outside tanks quick-connectors. You do NOT want to re-use the one BMW put at the factory a 2nd time. They can be removed with small pliers, thin screwdriver, bending and cursing ;-)
The only bad thing about the screw-on clamps is that they require a good feel for how tight you need so that hose does not slip over filter with pressure. The BMW one-time use clamps do not have this problem when you have proper pliers.
IMPORTANT: if you have a USA specs K1200RS with Charcoal-canister under seat, you need to be careful when you reconnect the 2 small vent hoses inside tank, If you reverse these, you will have the water drip from cap into canister and the fuel vent going into hose to the ground (opposite of what it should be). Blow with air gun into the small hole on top, near fuel-cap and check that it goes to hose to the ground (hose is between frame and transmission case behind footpeg).
