83 gl1100 front calipers, which one goes on which side?

Can any one tell me which calipers goes on which side of the front wheel. The calipers have 2 different size pistons on the front wheel.

Does the bigger piston go to the hand brake?
Does the smaller piston caliper go to the linked back brake?

Or is it the other way around?

The smaller pistons go on the right side, easy to tell when you start to put them on because the bleed screw has to be on top.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Thank You very much. I could not find this in any manuals or online anywhere I looked.

It's a no brainer.
If you try to put them on the wrong sides the mounting holes don't line up.
