Not really.
Remove the two small bolts under the front edge of the seat, open the fuel door and release the two levers on each side to release the hood. Remove the two black filler panels below the handlebars. Lift up on the center hood, disconnect the plugs and antenna from the front of the radio system. Remove the ground wire from the radio mountng screw. You should be able to remove the fairing hood completely. Take the whole thing to a radio repair shop.
Installation (of course) is the reverse. Be sure the plugs are inserted completely in the radio.

You can try a cassette tape cleaner 1st. You can get them almost anywhere. If that does not work, please see the following:

Any qualified stereo technician can work on your Tape Player in the radio. Look for an electronics repair shop in your local area. It probably only needs a good cleaning and possibly a belt or two.

Hope this helps. If you find this information useful, please vote on this post. Thank you.

I have a 1998 Goldwing SE. The radio works fine. The cassette player is broke, will not retain a tape, spits it right back out. Was supposed to have been repaired through my local Honda dealer. I failed to...

The project has been on hold for a couple years and will continue to be on hold. There is nothing to stop me from riding anywhere I choose but I'm thinking that the $$ spent to repair the cassette player could impact my chances of a future trip. Better to go quietly than not to go at all.

Thank You

Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. First of all gather all of the documents you will need for the installation, including the alarm system instructions and wiring diagrams. You can get wiring diagrams from the dealership (or from BMW site), from your motorcycle's original manual or online. Know the wiring colors, locations and polarities before you start.
2. Plan the installation to save time in the long run. Examine your motorcycle side-by-side with the diagrams. 
3. Get all of the necessary equipment together. The type of equipment you'll need will depend on the system you buy. 
4. Prepare the wiring. Find the motorcycle's battery, and disconnect the negative (-) terminal to avoid electrical shorts and battery drain.
5. Twist the wires of the same plug together and tape them with electrical tape. Once you finish wrapping these smaller bundles, tape them all together. Find the wires you will be connecting to on your bike.
6. Locate any additional wiring. Most of the wires will be running from the ignition of your motorcycle back toward the center of motorcycle to the fuse box. Open the ignition switch to test the wires to make sure they are the right ones. You will not be connecting to a wire near the ignition. You will need to follow the wire back towards the fuse box, closer to the mounted alarm system.
7. Remove the panels where your wires are located. Remember where all the screws and clips go.
8. Pick a location for installation. Find a spot that is not visible. 
9. Strap or adhere the system to a support brace or flat surface. If you use the adhesive pad that came with the system, make sure to prepare the surface with rubbing alcohol or a degreaser before mounting.
10. Test wire polarity first and then start connecting the wires to the correct locations. The best way to do this is by soldering or heat-shrinking the connections. You can also splice the wires and then tape them with electrical tape.
11. Know the wires. The ACC/Interface wire connects to the IGN/ACC wire located in the motorcycle's ignition switch harness. The wire you are looking for in the ignition switch harness should be 12 volts when the ignition is on, and should not show any voltage when the ignition switch is off. 
12. Find the engine immobilizer wires. Cut the side of the wire that leads back to the main power of the bike. Connect one end of the cut wire to the first immobilizer wire and the other end of the cut wire to the second immobilizer wire. 
13. Connect the power and ground wires directly to the battery terminals. You will need wrap-around clamps or terminals taps. 
14. Refer to the manual and make sure all of the system's functions are working properly. If you have any problems, read the troubleshooting section of the manual and check all of your connections.
15. Put all of the panels back on. Hope it helps........

Good Luck!!

What brake fliuid to use in my multistrada?

Use DOT 4 or DOT 5.1 fluid. The best readily available brake fluid is Castrol LMA - found at any auto parts store. Other very good fluids are ATE Super Blue or Motul RBF600. Seems the Motul is the best performing, with the highest boiling points. This is what you want for feel and performance - the higher the boiling point the better. Do not use dot 5. It's silicone fluid and is designed for garage queens - it compresses and vaporizes under hard braking. The advantages are once flushed in you will never have to change it again, it doesn't eat paint, and it will not corrode hydraulic parts. (think show bikes/cars). DOT 5.1 is not the same as DOT 5 silicone.
