Will an OEM CD radio directly replace my cassette (2000) radio?

My present radio cassette has a dead rear left channel.
I've seen a few used & tested LT OEM radio CD units on eBay.
Would one of these directly replace my original radio?

A good man once told me, "Don't ever get rid of your bike. It's your soul."

'06 Audi A6 3.2, "Beauty"
'00 BMW k1200LT, "Kitty"
'82 Suzuki GS1100GK, "Medussa(evil)"
'80 Suzuki GS1000G, "Penny",

Gone, but sorely missed
'77 Yam XS750-2D, "Loretta"
'84 Yam Venture, "the Polish Pony"
'73 Porsche 911T Targa(mechanical injection)

Hey, man...have I got a deal for you. I've got the OEM 6(??) cd changer that I've removed from my 03 LT. I put the question marks in there because I really don't know just how many it holds.
It worked last time I had it in the bike...can't speak to it's present functionality.
Bottom line: I don't want it, ain't gonna use it, it's just gathering dust.
Send me a prepaid shipper with an address on it and I'll send it to you. Gratis. Free. No charge. It's a gimme. Nothing ventured, everything gained (well, maybe the shipper).

I pulled in to Nazareth, I was feeling about half past dead...

Hola, you still have that cd changer gathering dust? Mine (2000 LT) has crapped out so maybe I could use two and build one that works. Lemme know - I'd send the shipper.

LarryJa cannot use the external CD player even if he swaps out the cassette for a later CD version (which will work) because his bike will not have the harness for the CD changer.
