Palatal Trills, Taps, and Flaps

This is for a language I invented long ago, but did not consider the current
problem. In Mayeemae Vuumae [J@je:m{ vu:m{], certain consonants become
palatals. If <l> [l] becomes <ll> [L], then a postalveolar trill [r] or
tap/flap [4] becomes palatal, but how does one represent it in X-SAMPA? [R]
(my analogical preference) is used for a voiced uvular fricative, but any
uvular fricative is lacking in Mayeemae Vuumae.

Also, is there a symbol indicating postalveolar.
