K1100lt out put shaft question

I think my k1100lt out put shaft is noisey,I've done some research and discovered that some k engines had a 6 rivet output shaft and the rivets failed.BMW then fitted a 12 rivet output shaft.
My question is how do I find out which shaft my bike as fitted without taking the bike apart.My bike is a 1995.

Out put shaft k1100lt

So, if all k1100 have the 12 rivet output shaft and the noise I am getting is coming from that area, what else could be making the rattle noise at idle. I have changed the monkey nuts and checked alternator bearings..

"They all do that."

My K1100s sound like "a box of rocks" at idle. I ignore it and they run just fine.

Aside from hearing preservation, this is another good reason to wear hearing protection when riding.
