Sorry to hear about your problem. Possibly the engine head is slightly warped and may need resurfacing of the head on a flat surface with fine grit paper until it looks perfectly flat or a couple of proper gaskets torqued down to the recommended torque values. I have serious doubts that a replacement head gasket can be made from a gasket kit. I suggest ordering something like this. Good luck with your bike and remember that the gasket has to be retorqued after a short running period.

Take wet or dry sand paper and put on a piece of glass or any good flat surface, sand head in circular motion until flat. Yes and retorque after cool down.........Curt
