O:K At the point for the rear brakes. I have none!!!!!. Now the question is how to correct that. There is very little brake. The pedal goes almost all the way down before I feel any pressure. ANY SUGGESTIONS GUYS? I have made sure all the air is out. Larger master cylinder????

How about putting electric brakes on the trailer, and adjust it to always pull back just a bit more than the bike needs?

AZGL1500: The issue is with the newly installed rear axle on my trike conversion. No trailer in the mix.

Hmmm, the bike's master cylinder might not have enough capacity for the Trike's rear brakes?
