I could make one sometime soon, I have a buds bike that wants the thin head gasket. its really not that bad the only hard part about it all is when you go to remove the head the cam chain guides are somewhat a pain to get around but you just have to rotate the head a certain way and it comes right off.

Awaiting a head to come in to do the work.....

Sweet.....I have my radiator, exhaust, and TB's off now. Look like there is plenty of room to work.

yeah just remove the upper and lower FRONT motor mounts and you can get to everything pretty well. I dont even tilt the motor forward when I do a head gasket. I think one time I loosened the lower 2 mounts just so move the motor around a lil...
