Panasonic cassette player belt

Post by walker70 »



Hi,I was wondering if someone on here can help me find a place where I can find the belt for the cassette deck,I have checked on Ebay and Amazon and all they sell are packs of 50 or 100 and I am afraid that there would be every size but what I need.

Sierra Electronics can help you out. They've been fixing goldwing radios for years. Multi generation family owned.

Hi,I already talked to them and the only way they will do anything is if I send them the entire unit and let them put one on it,don't blame them but if I can find the belt I can put it on myself.Lol.

I had one, give it to new owner with bike I think.

Twice I had to send my '85's radio (once) and then the Auto Vol unit (the second time) to Sierra for repairs. They cleaned the tape head, new belt, and fixed a loose solder joint as I recall for fixed price, turn around was FAST too. When the radio was on the bench … the tech called me like a doctor would in operation. Good folks.

Hello,I just wanted to let you guys on here know that I found a company that can get you the belt for the OEM cassette player,it's Ken's Electronics out of Michigan,total cost with shipping was about $14.00 dollars,beats the heck out of anything else I came across but I will probably have to let Sierra Electronics service the unit to clean it up.Lol.

It was really nice out Yesterday, a buddy came by on his Beemer so I got the bike out. We went about 100 miles, I forgot the MP3 player and was getting tired of all the commercials on the radio. I hit the Cassette button and was pleased to find a nice mix tape I had forgotten was in there.

These Panasonic decks are very well made units, once you get yours running it should last forever. I doubt mine has ever been serviced, and even the cassette player still works as New!
