Try something like this:

Label lbl= (Label) FormView1.FindControl("RLabel_RecordTotal");
lbl.Text =  FormView1.PageCount.ToString();

I think this should work...in your Pager.Position= Bottom

  Label lbl = (Label)FormView1.BottomPagerRow.FindControl("RLabel_RecordTotal");
        if (lbl != null)
            lbl.Text = FormView1.PageCount.ToString();
If it is Top / TopBottom it should vary accordingly.

DataBound should do ...
Although I think the PageCount will be available in Page_Load and PreRender (but if using AJAX might throw some exception)
