Question Cosmetic question about my '03

I have searched and looked thru countless amout of photos and haven't found another like mine. There is no "RC 51" decal on either side of the nose between the radiator and the headlight on my motorcycle. I know the '03 is a little different than other years but the other '03s I have looked at have the decal. I thought that maybe it has aftermarket plastics or something but with close inspection it looks quality enough that I would label as having factory quality paint. The quality and thickness of the plastic itself appears to be high, unlike other "Chinese" or non-OEM pieces I have come across in the past. Also, the decals that are on the motorcycle elsewhere are good quality, tough, thick, properly aligned decals. Again, not typical for a cheap aftermarket product. In a nutshell, nothing at all leads me to believe the body is anything but factory OEM Honda parts. Have any of you seen one that doesn't have the "RC 51" decal? Is there a trade secret that would allow me to take a quick peek to verify authenticity of them? Thank you in advance.
Cheers!

Just off the top you your heads, do you know of or have you heard of any NOT having the decals? To touch a little more on the existing body as far as I can tell it is , with a 5% margin for error, 95% factory correct as far as decals, colors and the Honda wing in concerned. Most of the aftermarket kits I've seen have either the Honda wing or the black part of the nose as the non-03 style.
If I get home and can get some pics tonight I will. I'd love to know what's going on with that. It's been bothering me and I just haven't asked yet.
Again, thanks guys...gals?

Thanks.
