Front Axle Bolt (Needed or Not Needed)

Hey guys wats happening, I need some advice on sumting, Im adding on some Powerstuntworx Axle Slderz on my 04' R6, I ordered a pair for the rear because the axle is hollow right. So when I mounted it up Im saying to myself, it sure would be cool to have a pair in the front, the problem is, the axle up front is hollow except for that bolt on the right side that screws in, I took out that screw/bolt and tried out the Axle Sliderz in the front and it fit. My question is would it be safe to ride without that screw/bolt on the front wheel or would it be safe replacing that screw/bolt with the pair of Axle sliderz????. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I put it in the stunters section but havent gotten any response. Thanks

You need the bolt.
If your pinch bolts would come loose, it would be the only thing holding the front axle in.

That bolt is being held on with almost 70 ft/lbs of torque. I think it would be safe to say it's needed.
