silly OEM oil filter question...

I'm about to change the oil for my first time on my new RC. It currently has K&N oil and air filters. I went to the local Honda dealership and asked for an OEM filter, the kid behind the counter handed me a plain black filter with no markings. Didn't seem OEM. What do the OEM ones look like?

Its been a while that I've seen an OEM filter, the one I took off mine black full of gray lettering, in a couple different languages.

I've been running a K&N 203 sense her first blood transfusion. I've done a good amount of research in oil filters. "This" filter will screen out particles "that" size and will bypass and at "what" psi. Kind of thing.
I feel that the K&Ns are one of the best out there, and even better in its price range.

Just my 2cents FWIW,
