Cylinder order? (Installing PCIII)

My PCIII instructions say to hook each lead up to the correct cylinders. How can I tell which cylinder is 1-4? Are thye in order, left to right?

They are numbered on the valve cover.

Awesome. Thanks, guys.

I also noticed:
a) The wires are numbered on the bike 1-4 (awesome)
b) The PCIII harness has the plugs in the correct order (4-1), starting from the right side of the bike.

When installing the PCIII connectors to the fuel injectors, I would suggest you "safety wire" them so that they stay snug and tight. There is a little play in the connection if you don't, which can cause some intermittent connection problems. I've installed a few of them, and each bike that wasn't safety wired had problems. Here's a link to some pics showing the safety wiring that we did when Ben and I installed his PCIII:

Nice pics Greg. That's a good idea.
