This deed is done, but before you spend any more money on your bike parts, check for the available alternates to OEM. You'd be surprised how much you can save.

A great source is Beemer Boneyard - not only used parts, but also many new ones. Here is the link. They do carry fuel pumps etc. for most models.
Here is an example: oilhead Valeo starter motor is $200, Hall sensor $230.
