Final Drive small bolt

I am doing the spline lube today and I noticed I am missing this bolt which the Clymer manual says should be there. Can someone please tell me what it's for and if I really do need it? Been riding the bike for a couple years now without it... Thanks.

Talking about the small hole in the loop at 12:00?

Just walked out and looked, my 2003 has an allen head in that hole. And those threads should be metric, not SAE.
