I have a 99 bandit 1200 the oil pump just went out. I’m trying to decide what to do have the motor gone through or buy a used motor to replace it. What year 1200 motors will bolt up in the 99 frame.

I didn't see mileage listed but just based on age....

I'd suggest looking for a motor or wrecked bike.
Rebuild kit is $300 plus probably need a crank also. Block or heads could be damaged. Block would need to be checked and usually honed at a minimum. There are so many parts in an inline 4 that it drives up the labor costs.
All work yourself I'd estimate $1k minimum to repair engine. Shop cost easily double that or more.

Cycletrader shows these models $1900-2500+.

Not knowing what the other parts go for, parting out to fund replacement bike is always an option.

Hope that helps.
