Some bike engines were designed without a head gasket. Other bikes have removed them as it's supposed to be increase compression, so it can work.

Wouldn't the engine suffer from knock/ preignition given then increased compression ratio unless the OP was using a seriously high octane fuel? Since a head gasket isn't normally a thin material, rather thicker - wouldn't it's absence have a noticeable effect?
