Front Forks Clamp?

I just re-adjusted my risers. I noticed the socket for the upper clamp bolts, and the right lower clamps are 12mm.
However the left lower 2 clamp bolts are 13 mm.
Is that normal?

Upper clamps:

Left Lower Clamps ( 13 mm ):

I had to go out and verify, but all my fork clamp bolts are 12mm. I got an '09.
