Make a phone call the Distributor of the product as well as to the Manufacturer. Let them both know that there is a discrepancy so that the mistake will not be made on other orders. There is obviously a difference between the two parts and bikes and visually the difference doesn't stand out.
I know the puig I put on my 05 has just a small bit where it didn't match up completely at the bottom but it's less than an eighth inch. I would verify the part numbers to make sure you got the right one and that they are really the same number according to honda.
