Ah, that explains it. I was wondering how the Protons would be able to
modulate the rest of the system electronically and so the answer is
"They don't". They just take care of themselves...

There's a resistor solution available from, well basically everywhere.
My local dealer had one back when I just swapped my rears for small 5
Watts and I kept it in when I installed the Protons. Took a bit of
head-scratching to install as it only had three leads. :-)
(Hint: The two blinkies have a common ground.)
