Okay. I've stared at the photo, even owned a GL1000 (a '77) for four years (a good while ago though) and I've yet to spot the gaffe.

Me either.
The picture is too small to see what's wrong.

I don't see it. These look like the correct carbs to me, although of course we are only seeing the left bank, not all four.

So maybe this:


Is it supposed to be plug 2/4, not 2/1?

That would have to be a wrong sticker, because the stock plug 1 wire is very short and would not reach to the # 4 plug.
