With any big BMW, just "burp" the tank by jiggling the bike gently with your knee/hip as you fill to get more gas in. Easily done with the bike on side stand. Try not to knock the bike over.

Its dead. If you resurrect it, it may reward you by leaving you stranded. Give it up. Or, use it as a science project in garage.
