Are the Valve Cover Sides interchangeable

Are the covers interchangeable, they look the same. The only difference would be the order of the GL 1100 casting would be reversed on one side? :?:

Thank You

Do you mean from left to right (yes they are and the GL1100 would not be reverseved as they both read from left to right) or between models?

If you aren't having fun doing it, find something else to do.

Thank You for the answer. I need a new Left Side but the adds I see say right or left, they looked exactly the same to me. I appreciate the clarification.

I seem to remember that they are not the same even though they look similar. The diameter of the half circular seals front and rear are different ? If you look at the rubber gasket you can see the different diameters?
