This is incorrect. The Shi'is and Sunnis claim that Shareef al-Radi was a Shee`ah,  even their own Zaydi scholars admitted to him being an Imami. There have been some Zaydiyyah who have been claiming Sharif al-Radi as a Zaydi for quite sometime. Their attempts to prove that he was a Zaydi is very weak, and can be refuted using al-Radi's own words in his other books.

Here is one proof, which should be enough, to prove al-Sharif al-Radi's Shi'ism. Taken from al-Sharif al-Radi's book titled Khasaa'is al-A'immah, in his introduction:

 

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
كنت - حفظ الله عليك دينك ، وقوى في ولاء العترة الطاهرة يقينك -
سألتني أن أصنف لك كتابا يشتمل على خصائص أخبار الأئمة " الإثنى عشر
صلوات الله عليهم

al-Sharif al-Radi, Khasaa'is al-A'immah (Mashhad: Majma` al-Buhooth al-Islamiyya, 1406), ed. Muhammad Hadi al-Amini, pg. 36
 
 
al-Sharif al-Raid starting compiling the book Khasaa'is al-A'immah in the year 383 AH, but he didn't finish his compilation because he was busy compiling Nahj al-Balaghah (see: Agha Buzorgh al-Tehrani's Dharee`ah, vol. 7, pg. 164)
