mounting head protectors on R1100

I bought a used set of head protectors on ebay for my R1100R and they 
came without hardware or instructions.  They are the BMW plastic type 
that go over the bottom of the valve covers.

It seems obvious and I have gotten the allen bolts I need, but I have 
one question.

The guard mount at 3 points:  one of the bolts that holds the cam 
sprocket cover on, an unused (on my bike) threaded hole below the 
cylinder, and an allen bolt that goes into the head just outside the 
exhaust header.

It is the last one that I'm asking about.  What does it do?  Can I 
unscrew it, mount the head guard, and retighten it without anything 
coming loose inside?  I can't find it on the on-line parts fiche or the 
diagrams in the CD service manual.
