I have these guards on my '96 R1100R, and, on mine, this first bolt you
mention goes under the cam cover, but does not share a bolt with it.
Did they change that on the later R1100's?  Is there a bolt/hole just
below the cam cover on yours?

Yes.  You have to take them off to to do the valve adjustments, and I
have had them off with no ill effects.

If you'd like I can take pics of them and email them to you (off-line of
course ;-).

FWIW (which ain't much),
