Newbie question:

There are factory puller caps that covers the locknut on each side of the swingarm that you loosen to adjust the drivechain. I have seen bikes on the sales floor with and without them on but unsure if they are absolutely necessary.

I'm assuming they work just like stem valve caps on your tires, but not sure if I makes a difference on the bike. Do you guys keep them or not?

I kept mine. I assume they try to protect the adjustment threads. But then if you need to use that part of the threading, then the cap wouldn't fit. *shrug*
