Your heads and cylinders are warped. Yes it is easier to pull the engine to fix this than trying to do it inframe. I can have the engine out on the bench in 2 hrs. Just take your time. You may need to have someone refinish the heads and cylinders. Check very close with a good straight edge. Might only be heads warped. If so get a piece of glass about 1/4" thick. Yes glass. Nothing else will be smooth and level enough. Use some wet sand paper and keep it wet. Sand head in figure 8 and as you do you will see the high and low spots. Continue until its all shiny smooth. Wash good and resemble with new kawi gaskets. It will take a few hours but is worth it in the end!!
