Before you do anything, check the crankcase vacuum. The gauge has a cone shaped tip that goes into the dip stick tube. You should see a -10 psi. If he needle bounces back and forth the problem is head gaskets.

Replace the head gaskets and head bolts.

Normal crankcase vacuum on a Command twin is 2psi...
