Default Cam Identification

I've searched the forums, but didn't find what I was looking for. I'm wondering if there are numbers stamped into the cams, that are visible, if I pull off the cam cover. I am curious if my XL883C has stock or aftermarket cams installed. She pulls hard straight to the red line, I have a hard time staying in the seat.

Thx

Stock cams for an 883 Rubbermount are "D" grinds and they are stamped as such
The 1200's are "W" grinds and stamped
FI 883's use "W" cams I believe
03 and earlier 883 and 1200 rigids use course tooth pitch "D" grinds
