Aux audio input 1994 gl1500se

I used to have an 83 gl1100A. This bike was totaled last October by a drunk driver while sitting in a parking lot without me on it. The drunk drivers insurance bought me my newest 1994 GL1500SE. I'm looking at the owners manual which shows an auxiliary audio input under the lefthand front storage pocket. It's not there. Another option is to simply use a cassette adapter, but it won't insert properly into the player. Is there a common problem that keeps the cassette from inserting all the way? Is the aux audio cable somewhere else? I'm supposed to be escorting a fellow veteran/biker funeral within the next week and would like to be able to play appropriate music during the procession. I'm also in the process of building a mount on the trailer hitch for the American flag.

Check this out. It is not near as bad to do as first glance.

The auxiliary audio input shown was only available on the Interstate model and not the Aspencade or SE, but you can do the aux mod as referenced above or you can pull the radio and send it into Sierra Electronics and they'll do it for 100 bucks...

The cassette adapter will work with a bit of fussing around or you could also use an FM modulator, but neither is as elegant as the aux audio mod... I did the aux mod on my 93 Aspy when I had it and the audio was excellent from my GPS/MP3 player... Be aware that you cannot listen to the regular AM/FM radio if you have the aux input enabled...

Note that there are two different modifications in this link. The first one uses radio circuit, and the second one uses cassette player circuit on the board.

The second modification given in this link is quite easy to do, if you have some soldering equipment.

The original sheriart article did not include the 2nd modification with the tape player... IMO, I would do the sheriart mod or send the radio into Sierra rather than fooling around with a modified tape cassette... At that level, an FM modulator would work better, again, IMO

I did the second modification given in the link, and have had no issues so far.

I installed this iSimple IS32 FM modulator on my '96SE and it works great.
It includes the switch (to go back and forth), USB charging port & a 3.5mm jack that fits my phone or mp3 player.
Very easy install and only $50.

It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

just an fyi guys, I had all 3 mods on my 93 Aspy at one time or another and the one that sounded the best and worked the best for me was the Sheriart mod...

I recognize that we all have different opinions and needs but the Sheriart mod worked best for me... In my neck of the woods, frequently I would get strong interference from local FM stations and the tape deck method just didn't work all that well for me...

Like I said, just one man's opinion...

I am trying to understand what you are saying. I think you are saying something different from the modification I have mentioned. You should not have had any interference in both modifications.
