missing bolt?? 08 CBR1k

I installed a radiator guard the other day on my 08 CBR1k. I noticed that it looks like my radiator is missing a top starboard radiator mounting bolt and washer. I went riding a couple of days ago with a guy who has an 08 also and it looks like his is missing the same bolt and washer. Maybe there isn't suppose to be one there idk. It really looks like there should be one bolt on either side of the top and one on the bottom center. Any has an 08 check it out, anybody know for sure let me know.

I just went and looked on mine and there isn't one either...

missing or not there in the first place

Radiator is mounted securely and doesn't have any play.

Yeah, mine is secure also, that's some weird stuff! maybe the honda engineers decide to save some weight by leaving that bolt off, or the radiator manufacturer got the specs wrong.

if its anything like an sv, it has a tab that it hooks onto on one side, a bolt on the other, and a bolt in the bottom.

I bet that's how it's made, I'd have to look at it closer next time the plastic is off. Looking from the top with plastic on it just looks like there is a spot where a bolt should go.
