Primary Clutch

I have an 09 M8 and I wanted to remove the primary clutch. Went to the dealer and purchased a puller, fortunately I didn't damage anything with this puller and they were pretty good about exchanging it for the right one.(Boneheads)
After reading about the guy who ended up cutting the clutch apart to remove the broken puller I wondered if I really needed to take the clutch off.
Well I managed to remove the clutch. Question is other than cleaning up the shaft is there anything I can do to make it easier to remove next time, some kind of anti seize maybe.

YOU DO NOT PUT antiseeze on the primary clutch and crankshaft to make it easier to get off next time. Properly torque it on. I subtract 5ft/lbs from the proper torque for easier removal.

NEVER USE ANTI SEIZE!!! The best way to do it is to clean the crank shaft and inside the clutch and make sure it is dry before installing. Anti seize allows the clutch to spin and gall onto the crankshaft. Then you will be cutting it off
