I put a double banjo on the rear brake and ran the sidecar caliper directly from the rear brake master cylinder linked to the existing front and rear linked brake set up. The master cylinder has enough travel to cope with all three calipers and the brakes work well like this. I rarely use the front brake lever, the rear brake pulling the outfit up nice and straight. Might be worth a try first.

For those who dont know, the brakes on the california are front left and rear calipers are powered by the rear pedal with the front right being powered by the front lever.
