Clip-Ons WTF does this do?

I need you guys to do a little visualization for me, I will post a picture later if needed.

I am wanting to move my clip-on just a little forward for comfort, etc. Well that is all fine and good but aparently the stock clip-ons on the triumph are bolted to the triple tree! There is a tiny little 10mm bolt that goes through the clip-on bracket and into the bottom on the tripple tree... So the standard clip-on bolt that tightens it to the fork is there but there is also a little as bolt that locks it into position on the tripple tree... WTF?

Question #1 - do I need that little bolt? All I can see it does is lock the clip-on in position!

Questions #2 - lets say I bought woodcraft clip-ons would I need to drill that hole in them and install that bolt?

I thought the clip-ons were adjustable, anyone else have a bike setup like this? I have looked at like 50 threads on the triumph675 site, I just don't know / trust those folks all that well.

I will post a pic later!

It is an alignment bolt; it isn't load bearing for the clip on. The pinch bolt holds the clipon to the fork tube. Just take caution in making the clip ons as even as possible.

I have accidently had one off before and it will cause the whole bike to lean in a straight line. Just observe caution and make sure the clips dont contact the forward fairing when turning at a lock.
