Hi Barely!
I understand your reasoning and your explanation brought back thoughts
and memories of my motorcycling days. (LOOOooonng gone)
I must, however, beg to differ.
As the link you posted states (in number 7); Toward the
end of the stopping process, you MUST back off the front brake
to avoid a "slow speed lockup". While using this "dual pull" setup;
That is virtually impossible to do.Therefore I suggest setting it
to a lesser pull to avoid that lockup. It's a compromise sort of
thing. (like so much else we're forced to do with our machines.)
PLEASE understand; I'm not trying to start a "pissin' match".
I just see no other recourse.

Rob (crazy ol fart)
