I'm having a problem to calculate the gap option greeks since there are 2 different exercise prices K1 and K2. Do you know the answer or where can I read about these particular greeks?

Long gap call option position is the same as long an asset-or-nothing digital option and short a cash-or-nothing digital option, both "classical".

$$ (S_T-K_1)\cdot 1_{S_T > K_2} = S_T\cdot 1_{S_T > K_2} -K_1\cdot 1_{S_T > K_2}$$
