If the bike runs just ride it to GT City BMW. You won't hurt anything the secondary filter will keep stuff from the injectors and any damage to the pump is already done.

If you get something other then the big $$$ BMW pump you will have to solder on different connectors. Not difficult but a little finnicky

I would consider changing the pump filter sock and the secondary meatl can filter and leave the pump.
The pump and filter have both been changed with new units. That is not the problem! A mechanic friend of a local is going to check it out today, plus I have a man will to haul the moto to Guatemala.

Yes, I will keep that in mind. I don't know him, but I followed his recent long term Ride Report.
