Parking brake

I am wondering if there is not a way to install a valve, manual or electrical, replacing the junction between the rear brake and the sidecar brake... Will it hurt the calipers piston?
Easier to just let the bike in gear?
Tks!

Bunjie or Velcro strap around the front brake lever works for me, used mostly during maintenance though.

I'd trust leaving it in gear more than any hydraulic parking system.

I am with Jim- Velcro strap works just fine.

And of course no one care about the CA law of having a parking brake on 3 wheelers...

Urals have parking brakes A nob locks the foot lever down just as you are standing on the brakes

For mine I got a "sleve tube" a "cam tube" and a lever, welded it all up just slips onto the footrest and a cable tie {currently} or hose clip {better idea} stops it slipping back off the footrest. Had no probs so far...
