could be that the input signal you are using is too high a level

The input that comes in from the tape player is designed for a very very low lvel of input, the output from your MP3 or whatever you are using as your music source is too high of a level which causes the distortion. I did the mod below and it works prety well although if I were to do it again I would shop for a good inline FM modulator instead of doing all the messing round to modify the radio.

How good is the sound quality of the in line fm vs the cassette addapter?.. im actually running a cassette adapter connected to a gigawire ipod charger with an output for the aux in, the level is kinda low as when used with the cassete sounds pretty clear

I used an inline Modulator with my XM radio in the cage and it sounded great, better than any casette adapter I ever heard. On a bike with the small helmet speakers or at road speed the sound is not going to be really great anyway. The inline modulator should provide good sound while not requiring a whole lot of messing around to get it to work. The internal radio mod turned out to be more work that I thought it was going to be when I started.
