But it isn't a proportioning valve. It's simply a device that tells you if the front and/or rear brakes have a leak. I like the way it tells you AFTER you step on the pedal and it goes to the floor that you have a problem. Duh. :-)
There was a thread (sorry Jay) a few days ago on another forum about removing the valve altogether to eliminate a possible leak. You still run separate front and rear lines but just eliminate the next to worthless warning light shuttle valve.

If you go that route, it is a good idea to change out the proportioning valve as well so that you have the redundant system...The later valves have a shuttle valve in them to allow for brakes on 2 wheels in the event of a leak. Gerard can bring you up to speed on this and likely can supply the parts.
