Vacuum reserve caister should do the trick. If you got a place to put it.

If you use a vacume resevoir Don't pump your breaks on hills. You'll lose your brakes

I've been reading something about vacuum being affected by the LSA of the cam. It could be that you have a narrow LSA??? Then again, putting in a resevior canister would probably be a better idea.
