Any cover should be tightened from the centre towards the ends .
It was always funny to watch some one complaining about how much their BSA leaked tightening their primary cover in a circle

Not sure which bolts are in the 'centre' of the primary cover to tighten first!  *smile*
1961 A10 - somewhat modified :-)
1980 TZ350 - lunatic Classic Race machine
1967 T20 Suzuki - heavily modified Classic Racer
1967 T20 Suzuki - pretty standard road bike
2007 KTM 660 SMC - fast and furious supermoto
Triumph 675 Speed triple
Ossa 250 and yet another T20 racer in bits both being built up

 Head bolts are the center 1st then the four outer then the four inner.
Most covers as Trevor said. Look at it as a clock, tighten 6,12,5,11,7,1,4,10,8,2,9,3.
Rocker box the four long bolts FL,RR,FR,RL then the bolt center inlet then front nuts then rear nuts.
At least thats how I've always done'em.
Cheers
