[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?
