The first time I did an oil change on my Duc I took it out. I played with it for awhile trying to figure out why Ducati put it in there. I gave up on trying to figure out why it was there.
NOW I KNOW...

I put it back in and have not had any problems with leaks. I guess I was lucky.... wait, I am never lucky.... who knows....

I believe the hex is a 10mm for the oilmesh. If you have a bike newer then -01 then it´s a 15mm bolt.

The small bolt UNDER the oilmesh.. well.. I´ve heard people using permanent loctite and getting a good seal with that, together with a new crush-washer.

Since you´ve put it back.. Leave it and see. If it starts sweating or dripping, then go with a crush-washer and loctite. Just make sure to clean the threads with brakecleen or some other de-greaser first.
