Ok, new fuel pump is installed and bike runs and rides fine in the 3 kms we've ridden so far. Here's some info on the pump and Bishkek in case others are interested.

Firstly, the original US 2009 F800GS fuel pump we pulled out is labeled:

0 588 453 439
Bosch
12v 01027
Made in Germany

The replacement part that we found in Bishkek is labeled:

0 580 453 453 (yes, same # twice)
Bosch
12v 10607
Made in Germany

We found the replacement part (and bought two) at a shop that has Bosch placards and flags all over the front. We also got some Motul injector cleaner there:

EVI Autocenter
42.865440,74.567480
Corner of Lev Tolstoy St. and Asanaliev St.

The new part is basically identical from the outside but I don't know the specs on pressure and liters per minute. But again, it's installed and working so far.

Next we went to the only motorcycle shop we heard of in Bishkek to see what kind of other shit we could buy. It's run by a guy named Dima and his wife. They've got helmets, armor, filters and other parts:

"Dima Biker"
42.882055,74.5235277
One container of many in the Kudaybergen Auto Bazaar (pronounced Kudaibergen Afto Bazaar)

After using his mouth to blow air through the original fuel filter, he believed that Tajik and other central asian gas had clogged it up and that the replacement fuel pump would also die if I didn't also replace the filter. We looked around the bazaar and went back to EVI to see if we could find a replacement filter but didn't find one. Instead we picked up a couple other types of fuel filters and hose that we could jury rig if we have find the new pump is struggling. I didn't feel any difference in the amount of pressure needed to blow air through the original filter vs. the new one so we left the original in place for now.

We did the job of replacing the pump (and also new tires we've been hauling since Turkey) at the home of a local biker, Alexi. Actually I don't think I met Alexi but I met a couple of his friends and his son. In particular, a fellow named Constantine helped us quite a bit. This place was recommended by a Japanese biker who's been on the mend in our guesthouse here in Bishkek after an accident a couple months ago. None of them speak english but no problem.

"Alexi Biker" (and Constantine)
42.881468,74.631522
212 Saratovskaya St.

Lastly, here's what I found when searching online for alternatives to the original pump. None of it has been confirmed by me so some of it may be speculative:

Found the following information on a few pages when searching for Bosch 0580453453. Some places no pump manufacturer is listed. On Amazon it says Power Pro:
