I put the sound damper and the cover plate on the cover.
I used Loctite rated to withstand high temperature 180*C but I've never seen my 899 oil temperature exceed 110*C. Better safe than sorry.
These bolts are torqued to 10 (9-11 Nm).

Next step is refitting the SEALING RING. This needs to be arranged in this order.
This requires a Ducati tool that looks like a male end entering the sealing ring to push it plush against the bottom of the magnesium cover. I used a socket and a hammer and banged it flush.
Then goes the shim.
and the circlip. THE CIRCLIP NEEDS TO BE SEATED IN THE GROOVE. If it doesn't fall inside the groover, continue to press the sealing ring until flush
Also fit in the oil viewer level. (not shown). Try not to bend the metal on the back end as it can bend rather easily so I found out.
I put the gear that came off while undoing the clutch cover. It fits inbetween here.
Using a brush, a derry towel and flat head, and pliers as needed clean the old liquid rubber gasket around the cover. (I think plastic brush would be fine. I used steel because it was all I had that was clean.)
MAKE SURE THE GREEN O-RING AND THE O-RINGS MARKED (A) ARE BACK ON INSIDE. OIL FLOWS THROW THESE O-RINGS.
Next I arranged and aligned the bolts so I know where things will need to go.
