Put 49 & 7 inside 5 followed by 6. 49 is to hold the washer (7) in place so the swinging arm pin (44) can go in easily. 49 is probably already inside 5.

My 2003 XT600E does it when it's cold. I put it down to the timing chain being dry as it's worse when the bike hasn't been started for a few days. As soon as the oil starts to get round it quietens...
