2006 1800 has been triked with roadsmith kit. can you restore brake system to work all calipers and pads on front wheel? The kit disables anti dive and left caliper when installed.

My opinion - you are better off without antidive, and are you sure the kit disables the left caliper, or just partially. It should still be hooked to the front brake lever.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

Right off hand I'd say talk to Road-Smith to see how/why it was disabled or crippled and see if it can be reversed and what any ramifications would be after reversal. They must have had a reason to disable/cripple it. Maybe find out why and go from there. It may be ill-advised to reverse it.
