Just take your time. Once the countershaft cover is off clean down the area with solvent and a small paintbrush - or even petrol, with lots of old newspaper under the bike and maybe an oil drain tray or similar.
When you unbolt and remove the actuator be careful not to pull the clutch actuator rod out of the engine.
As OM28 suggests take the actuator to a rag covered work area before fiddling with it.
