I don`t know of any 886 heads, I do know of the camel hump 186 heads, these are good street heads, but no factory head compares to aftermarket heads. If you go for the 186`s I`d want to be assured they were not cracked, and that the guides are good and the exhaust seats were replaced with hardened units. If the seller can`t give proof of these things I wouldn`t buy them, as if you did buy them and they were cracked you`d be crying.
A good set up calls for what you want the engine to do, and using parts that work together as a team to achieve the goal.

Could they have been 882s? If so, they are light castings prone to cracks, but apparently a decent flowing head.

(886?) That's gotta be a typo, the newpaper here is notorious for that. I'd call the seller and ask him to confirm the casting numbers. Personally, I wouldn't pay $350 for a set of 882's.
