The reason is usually race regulations stating a particular cut-off date, meaning that the 1st gen crank cases have to be used - but there is nothing in the regs to stop the use of the later better cylinder head & pistons, it would require a set of bespoke con rods & a load of other work to make it work.
The question was asked by a lad a bit back from South America I think it was (I can’t find his post – it may have been in one of the deleted racing forums) who was racing a t595 & he asked this question as he was lacking power compared to some of the other bikes he was competing against & he wondered if the later (2001>) cylinder head fitted on (1997>) early Bottom end, I seem to remember he thought some of the Triumph Tigers had the early head on the later crank cases & so presumed the later head fitted fairly easily
