1999 k1200lt stereo upgrade

Hi all

I have the original system (single tape/6 stack cd changer and a toggle switch at the back next to the pillion), what l'm hoping for is to play music through my phone (samsung) and still use the handlebar controls. Not fussed about losing the cd stacker in pannier. Have looked around but alot of the posts are about the 02 and more recent models. Is it possible to play music from my phone through the original bike/helmet leads?

Cannot seem to transfer sound/music from speakers to the helmet speakers, is this the toggle switch at the back near the power outlet? I have no round switches in the stingray above the tape player. I think having the toggle switch in the middle position enables the headphones to play - not sure as it doesn't do anything - Having it in the up position gives sound to the front speakers and down gives sound to all 4 speakers and in the middle gives sound to the front also.

Hope someone can help. Many thanks.

Sounds like it had an autocom intercom system mounted, I had a switch like that on mine might be the same, I use a Dice silver line pro, it it replaces the stacker and you can use an ipod or your phone to play through the speakers or just blue tooth phone to helmet with a sena or scala rider, works great. the link above will give you all the info you will need.
