760-744-1688 is the number for SoCal Trike Center here, Rix the owner has come up with a double handle front master cylinder, 2 levers. 1 for the front the other for the rear. Give him a call tomorrow after 11:00 your time.
I have seen posts of moving the foot pedal to the left side too for those in your situation.

I think Rix uses these and does some modification with it.

Dave,

I lived in Arizona 20 years and did not know that Meadview existed until just now...

Been across Lake Mead many times, but never in the area where you are.

Are you retired there? I can't imagine that being a place where one would "grow up" at.

I spent the night there one night in 1989 on the park picnic table. I was tired and didn't want to set my tent up in an RV park on rocks. I got woken up by the local police @4 am he let me stay but said the next officer might not be so helpful. I'd had a long day and night riding down from the bay area and found the place after stopping at at least a dozen 'camping' signs which all they had were rocks. Wasn't what I called camping. That was in February on my way to Daytona on my 76 CB750 with my hound Cody.
This picture is in May up in Gold Hill CO at some friend's house headed back to Breckenridge for the Summer.

A shot of us in Vegas at my MIL's in 1983 so you can see Cody better.

The other thing with the trailer is you could put electric brakes on it to help handle the weight of the trailer. Are you towing a tent camper?

There is something called a Residual Valve.

This is used to keep the brake fluid from draining back to far down the brake line, it holds brake fluid pressure up much closer for that better rear brake feel.

Disc Brakes require a certain LB residual valve and Drum rear brakes different poundage residual Valve.

They allow the fluid to back off just enough to release the caliper piston, but keep fluid pressure right where you need it.

Have no idea if there is any set up work know nothing about the trike. The front wheel skid in sand and gravel. I did put on 12,000 miles last summer touring. No problems , Mabie I was just lucky

[quote=newday777;3143977][QUOTE=fatwing chris;3143697]I wonder if the splitter(proportioning valve) that they install with the trike kit is adjustable?I assume they disable the linked brakes,so they must use a different Prop Valve.
Quote:

Most of the trike kits don't add a proportion valve. I don't know that any proportion valve is adjustable either. Linked brakes stay hooked up on most trike kits. The kits today hook into both brake lines on the rear of the gl1800.
Few installers, though some will, run just the front calipers together off the front master cylinder as it's not recommended by the kit manufacturer.
The trike kits have a brass tee block on the rear end to send the fluid to both wheels as on a car or truck.

As to the op to adjustability of the rear brakes, only drum brakes can be adjusted. You didn't say if you have drum or if you have disc brakes on the trike kit. The installer should have fully bled out the brake systems at install. How long has the kit been on, time and miles?
You used to be able to get adjustable ones at one point.May have been for a race application,but I remember seeing them somewhere.
