Either put an adjustable proportiong valve in the line or cut the brake pad down on the side you don't want the most bite on. That's my two cents.

I just cut down the RS pad. (took about two inches off both sides. You will be able to tell if you cut enough.

cutting the pad works very well. Thats how my car is set up now. I recently saw where us brake makes metric calipers in 3 sizes now. Stock metric, 1/4 inch bigger and 1/4 smaller. You could run the bigger caliper on the left and the smaller one on the right.
