Gasket clutch side

Anybody know if the rubber/steal gasket have been replaced by a regular "paper" gasket?
i got my K12R back from a certified BMW motorrad center and there is now a paper gasker on the clutch side. i know there was a rubber/steel one there before (because i checked if the cam chain guard was fitted) and after service and fitting of chain guard at "motorad" there is a paper one. Well im going to change and update the clutch thats how i know...

Re: Gasket clutch side

The paper one seals if installed clean and dry. Check your starting torque of 3Nm twice then do your 90*. A T25 hand screwdriver snug (not tight) is about 3Nm if you can't measure that low.

I used the metal one a couple of times as I was able to get it off and not kink it. But I use paper now. I think that metal silicone gasket was expensive and probably used for some factory assembly reason.
