In order to make the pump last, it has a mode to make the pump run at 70% capacity when full flow is not required. I've heard that a 1200 GS injector is pretty large and that it will pass some stuff (fine sludge, etc) without a problem. I've not seen this and cannot confirm the accuracy of this statement.
I can't say for sure, but BMW use the same new generation Bosch fuel injectors as automobiles and those are all 4 hole (pintels sp?) designs. The 4 small holes allow better atomization of the fuel for a more complete burning and better emissions, so I doubt they would use a single large hole design.
