Also, your tire/wheel assemblies need to be balanced for riding the road. Suspension settings won't fix that.

Yes, that's uaually sufficient. In and out, stop to stop, until it's travel is smooth all the way, no skipping between air pockets. It's usually at the very extremes of travel each way that air pockets persist. Just be vigilant and you'll get it all.
What are you setting your final oil height to?

With the bike on a stand and the wheel off the ground, spring preload might be enough get ahold of and pull up the cap, if not, It helps to have the wheel off so you can push the fork tube up, pushing the cap out of the tube.

You removed it to " adjust the clutch"? I'm thinking there's more to it than that if you removed the case cover.
Being in Australia where it can be difficult to get parts, I'd have no problem reusing a gasket that was still in good shape.
