No issues that I've ever heard about for either of those bikes for that year. The big GSXR was mildly refreshed for 2003, new bodywork, more power, a few tweaks here and there. The magazines rated it as the top-dog literbike for that year. (Although there's not a real noticeable difference in performance to the average street-rider)
Can't go wrong with either one of them.
