Re: K1100LT rear speakers repair, how to get in?
I had the same issue with the radio. In the end I pulled the mounting plate out of the housing that the radio assembly sits in, then was able to move the radio and dismantle it to re-flatten the plate. The plate sits in three (or four?) spring clips, one on the left, one on each side, top and bottom. When you put it back, bend some tension out of the clips to make life easier in future.
I covered the plate in black vinyl before replacing the radio. Looks far better.
You could use a cassette to 3.5mm converter to run your iPod, that way you could make use of the bike audio system, especially volume and mute controls. Take a pair of speaker feeds out to your helmet via a couple of 3.5mm stereo plugs if you aren't wanting intercom or communications from the helmet. Otherwise mini or standard DIN.
As you have the rear speakers, you could also pick the feed up from there for the helmet and disconnect the 'speakers. Then you can fade between bike and helmet audio.
