On the 2010 they have metal caps covering the H and L.  There is no adjustment the way it is now.

I'm guessing drill them? How are you guys doing it.
My 2009 338 has no covers ,just plain metal screws with slots. I can set mine fine. Didn't even check under the shroud to see if they have restrictors or not.

So it looks like you need a special screwdriver for these caps, I just use a regular flat driver on my 2009 screws ???.

Maybe it is a EPA USA thing.

All I know is a screw driver wont move anything on mine with them caps there.

I was trying to determine from the pictures that if you drill through and remove the caps will the needles stay in place without having to buy new caps and put in there?
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

I was wondering that myself after seeing how they were in the SB.

Maybe put some springs behind the needles?

I nip the stops off with the bench grinder and reinstall.  That tool is under $10 and worth every penny.

Try as they might so far the powers that be have not been totally successfull in making the things tamp proof in an attempt to save us from ourselves .Given enough time they might though and then other methods will no doubt thwart the efforts .What great sport this has become,thank you Ralph Nader
