Default Buell Heads VS Sportster Heads

Ok I just bought some Buell heads I think they are off a 2000 x1 not sure. Can anyone tell me about the difference in buell heads from year to year so I can compare them to sportster heads. Or just some info on the buell heads in general. Thanks

You'll have to put on another set of 883 heads or you'll have to change out your pistons too.
