    Question Advice on upgraded head-gaskets!

    Just after some advice on upgraded head gaskets please.
    I am doing the valve stem seals on my (2002) 888, I thought it would be a good idea to upgrade the head gasket while the head is off.
    For the people who have done this:

    Where can you get a 'Group A' head gasket from?
    What are these 3 & 4 layer had gaskets on ebay like? - Which one is better (3 or 4 layer)?
    Is there any other jobs worth doing whilst the head is off? I will be doing an upgraded head gasket, valve steam seals, re-grinding valves back in and cleaning etc.
    Cheers guys.

    head gasket should be the weakest point of the engine as can save the rest of it, just my opinion tbh upto you though
