Auxiliary audio input on 1986 aspencade

I recently bought an 86" Aspencade and have pretty much been using every excuse to take it out and I'm just loving this thing. I just wish I could hook my phone or an mp3 player to the stereo. I have tried one of those cassettes with a headphone wire coming out of it only to find that to get it to work I need to jam it in backwards and then its barely Audible at full volume with the bike idling. I've seen some guys hotwire things directly into the head unit but I'm not that confident in my ability to take it apart and have it work when it goes back together and I dont really want to replace it as I've heard difficult to find one that fits and I'd lose the hand controls in the process.
The one idea I do have left is to maybe route something through the factory com system, the bike came without the headsets and I don't have a use for it anyway. I have seen a few adaptors for that go from the 5 pin to a headphone jack but these mostly seem to be for audio out not audio in. If anybody else has tried this or has experience with the comm systems on these bikes any advice is appreciated, otherwise I'll update with any failure/success

You know after I posted this I spent the better part of 3 hours working on this and only managed to figure out which two wires create a feedback loop, and that I suck at working on audio equipment. I totally forgot that those fm/mp3 things existed so I'm just gonna go buy one of those after work

I'm good at electronics, but it just wasn't worth the time to wire something in, other than a 12v socket.
