    You'll probably need to know the size of the gaskets that you require.

    I find it odd that you cannot order the correct head gaskets from Cometic. Many of us have purchased gaskets multiple times from them. Hereís a link to an older thread that contains part numbers for said gaskets. http://www.ducati851and888.com/showt...88-Head-Gasket

    Yeah, I called Cometic directly so I only know what they told me (maybe I talked to the ‘wrong guy’??)
    I already ordered an Athena Top End kit from Brooks Barn in England (PN- P400110600888/1) so hopefully it all fits together properly. Now I just need to sort out my MBP/valve stem lock groove problem and I should be good to go. Thanks for your help though.
