It appears that Motoseal is actually Permatex MotoSeal Grey, which I used: Permatex 29132 MotoSeal 1 Ultimate Gasket Maker Grey, 2.7 oz

Then blame not that specific product, but maybe the application. I have used Motoseal for years in various applications with excellent success (not a failure yet). It seems to me to be identical to Hondabond (all anaerobic sealers). I worked at a motorcycle shop for while and we used it for some (mostly Honda) case covers that the factory doesn't call for a gasket.

It will not work if you had any oil residue on either side, and it's not easy to keep the oil pan clean unless you wait long enough for it to stop dripping.

Clean both sides (with carb cleaner or contact cleaner, something that will remove oil residue and not leave a film), apply a film to both sides, wait a minute or 2 and assemble. Then give it about 15 minutes or so and fill motor w/ oil. Maybe your film was too thin? But you also don't want major squeeze out.

Like I said, it works fine for me.

Spoke to a tech at the dealer, guess what? There's DucatiBond

Anyway, the tip was to let it set up for around 45 minutes before filling with oil.

Buy a roll of gasket material and make a gasket. It takes about two minutes if you just trace the outline of the plate. I gave up on sealers years ago and just make a new gasket once per season when I check the screen filter.

I just checked my oil screen for the first time on an oil change this week on my 2011 MTS. Dealer had the gasket ( 78810651A ) in stock for $4 and change so I decided to go that route instead of sealant. It's been a couple days and we're leak free. For $4, will be way less mess and easier checking it next time. Definitely the way to go for me. 42,500 miles and screen looked brand new with only 1 little metal fleck.

I did the same thing, initial cost high but easy to do over n over even blindfolded.
