Its odd for sure. It seems that this vendor sells a one size fits all kit. Maybe to simplify cataloging and stockpiling?Some confusion for me. A stock K1300S or GT has a strainer at the bottom of the fuel pump. There is no canister filter. Your move to an aftermarket fuel pump will need to use the suppliers instructions. Be sure to use fuel injection rated clamps (very tight) and hose that is both immersion and fuel injection rated. #4 is the strainer. I see you live in England, but Euromotoelectric sells affordable pumps, hose and clamps. Shipping could be an issue. Your fuel pump pressure regulator could be involved with your low fuel pressure. Does your Quantum pump have the mounting ears and rubber shocks #2?
Please keep the thread going for information sharing. Maybe you could check EBAY in UK or EU for a deal like this:

I wonder if its was dirty enough to impede pressurization. I gguess you will soon find out.Hi, thanks all for the replies.
Here’s a link to the US variant QFS OEM Replacement In-Tank EFI Fuel Pump w/ Tank Seal, Genuine Mahle Filter, Strainer for BMW K1300S EFI 2008-2016, Replaces 16147680379
The pump is a direct replacement and you can purchase without an inline filter. The thought behind the filter is linked to this YouTube videohttps://youtu.be/xdyHT3pGm_A
The pump is now out and the suction strainer is filthy and I got a load of filthy fuel out of the back of the ‘bowl’ (or hidden filter) that sits behind the instantaneous connector - now flushing everything. Suspect the PO never changed it in 65k miles!
Hi Beech,Varnish is a problem after a month or two.
Here is a fuel pump assembly used from Germany listed in the UK eBay site. I would install a new filter sock and gasket for the cover. Use some lube on that large oring so it will slide into position. Do not over tighten the fuel line outlet fitting. It is deceiving. You can split the flange plastic. Use a fuel proof sealant. Below is a photo of what can happen to the oring seal on the male connector to the tank outlet fitting unless you are careful. Hold open with one hand the push latch even though it can snap open. Only release when you sure your bottomed out. When wires hooked up but before putting on any plastic turn on the ignition key so the fuel pump spins up and pressurizes the system. You can check for leaks. The oring blow leaked and was installed and not checked by a dealer.

Thanks Beech - mine has got the metal ring, so all good. 👍In the face of the flange is a hole for fuel out. It needs a female fitting. Over tightening this fitting will split the threaded boss in the face of the plastic. If you have it out and it does not have a metal ring fitted around the outer edge of the boss, I suggest you buy one from Beemerboneyard and install it before work starts. I used an Oetiker clamp.
