EPA stops to keep you from getting full adjustment and possibly burning up saws.   I use drywall screw and remove them. 
Some say reinstall them back once done.

I like the caps for they help to hold the screw driver in the slot when the engine is running.

But . . . I remove the tabs from the caps so they do not limit the adjustment of the screw.

If someone else saw I do like Jim above. trim tabs reinstall.  If I dont trust the owner know how I leave tabs.

Mine I either just left off or trimmed tabs.

On most chainsaws the limiter caps help fill up the adjuster access hole. When you leave the caps off, small wood chips get into the air box area and plug the filter quicker.
