I understand that the Honda blackbird has a Combined braking system, but is on both the lever and the pedal

I am thinking of fitting a compensater valve to my bike to run front and back brack from the foot control. Is this legal, will it cause the bike to fail an mot? Does it need to have two independent means of braking?

Can some one please advise

Many thanks
