K1200LT Rear Brake Indexing for Rebuild Reference

I'm in the process of removing my rear drive to send it away for rebuild and am not sure about how to index the rear brake as per the K1200LT service manual. Is there a simple way to do this? What marks on the disc / rear drive should I use, given that during rebuild the rear drive will be handled quite a bit and may remove any marks I make beforehand?

As a reference here is the verbiage from the manual on page 34.9:

"Mark the installed position of the brake disc on the
rear wheel drive, so that vertical runout of the sensor
ring is not altered."

Any help is greatly appreciated.

It does not to be indexed. It also doesn't need any Locktite on the threads because the bolts can't go anywhere when the wheel is installed.

I agree with Dave, but if you feel the need to mark it, just get a center punch and choose a bolt hole. Then just punch the hub and the ring.

Didn't index ole Toad's ring and didn't Loctite the bolts. BTW - I'll ping Woody to remind him to bring the cut-out socket with him tamale at lunchtime. I've got a 30MM socket if you need one.
