Did you try a quick rebleed to release any air bubbles?I also experience a soft brake pedal upon initial braking after the trike has set a day or so. After the first application, it's fine for the rest of the day. There is a check valve in the rear brake lines that needs to be replaced. If you'll call the Trike Shop, they'll send you another valve if you want to replace it yourself, or if it's covered by warranty you can take it to a Trike Shop repair facility. Mine is still in warranty but the closest Trike Shop repair facility is 100 miles away so I had them send the part to me. I haven't put it in yet as this isn't that big of an issue for me to remember to hit the pedal once before starting a ride. I probably won't get the valve replaced this riding season, but at least I have the part if the situation gets worse.
Yep I did. I am supposed to go up there and visit with him some more after I put all the new brake parts on. We will compare notes over BBQ so he say's. I am looking forward to it. Wanna follow me up there?Well it was a thought. Did you talk with Charlie about this?? Chaz36 I think it is.
Toolbox- did you get your solf peddle problem fixed. Mine is still solf. I'm going to try bleeding one more time. If you have a fix, please let me know.
We see rear brake issues on some kits more often than others. Not TS by any means. An inline pressure valve could be the common denominator of course. The best people to answer a Trike kit part question would be the manufactuer. Did you installer roll your brake pedal up one notch? I can't say the line crossing is the problem but it can happen easily if you're not paying attention.Lonestar, All suggestions are always helpful as is the one concerning the supply and the return brake lines. I just have one question,,,each of us that are having the same or similar problems with our brakes on our Trikeshop conversions have each had our trikes built by totally different builders. Would all those builders have made the same mistake? I've bled my brakes twice now with no appreciable positive results. It doesn't seem to be REAL dangerous as yet, but then I don't want it to get that way either. I appreciate any and all input with this matter.
