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.)
