going to try and get a head done at rb designs, found a 200 head in the usa are these the same I've checked the part numbers and one end in 09 the other 10
he also wont post to England so buying in the usa and posting straight to him solves 1/2 the problem

The 200 and 220 jugs are interchangeable I beleive. I have read about some people shipping via DHL to get RB's work out of the country.

The combustion chamber of the 220 head is larger than the 200 head. It goes along with the difference in cylinder diameter 69mm versus 66mm. The 220 head will lower the compression on a 200.
I once bought a head off of ebay that was advertised as a 220 head. I sent it to Ron Black for his magic thinking I would swap on my 220 when he was done. When I sent it to him, he discovered that it was a 200 head and told me it wouldn't work right on a 200 even with his reshaping of the combustion chamber. I sent him the 220 head off the bike and started over.
