There are several ways to find a leaking head gasket.

- you might be able to see traces of oil seeping out at the joint

- you might be able to hear it.. sounds like a squeal or a pop-pop noise

- when the bike is first started cold, you can spray some soapy water around the joint and look for bubbles or spitting

And of course, their will be some loss of compression pressure.
