Bought the bike recently.Changed the oil.My question is about the drain plug gasket.Is it aluminum?

It's a soft metal end is called a "crush washer", it gets compressed everytime you remove it, is a good practice to replace it with a new one at every oil change, i buy them in a pack of 10, and go by the specs when torqueing down that bolt, use the right torque wrench to avoid a nasty situation by stripping the threads, good luck.
