Will an Oz radio/cassette work in a UK 1999 K1200LT ?

If I was very lucky to source a working radio cassette in Australia, would it work on my 1999 K1200LT ?

Have a good oppo down there who may be able to find me one.

If an Australian replacement wouldn't work in my machine, I can save him some petrol.

Grateful for any pointers.

Many thanks,

Dave.

If you are talking about the radio section as well, check to see that the tuner is compatible. Here is the U.S. the stations are all odd such as 100.3 FM. I believe the European standard is even such as 100.2 FM. I imagine there's a way to change that if you know how.

Looks like we are all over the shop when it comes to frequencies, but appears to mainly be odd-digit for the main stations.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...s_in_Australia
Some "narrowcast" ones seem to be even-digit.

I would have thought they just auto-tuned in the frequency that was strongest... so long since I set mine now.

Appears the UK is a mix of both also... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...United_Kingdom

I can't imagine why it wouldn't work... or just go the Sony, Pioneer or other route like others have.

Linton, Dean & Chris.

Thanks for your reply.

I have written to the BMW customer service here in the UK, twice.

No replies.

Surely the information isn't a secret !

From other posts I understand that the SONY/Pioneer equipment is no longer available.

The JENSEN replacement appears to need a fair bit of hacking of the plastic.

Thank you again,

Dave.

We have 9 khz splits for AM in Australia, not sure what they have in UK but most countries are 10 Khz. IE a US radio will not tune our local AM station on 594 KHz.
FM should be fine world wide.
cheers Andrew
