By "on the Internet" I think you are refering to the Cycle Innovations website, which mentions .022 gap. But that's if you are using their carb replacement. Otherwise, what I found was .026 gap for the GL1000, but there are some other GL1000 that should chime in shortly.

.022 is too close. Between .025 and .030 is all fine and .026 is ideal as the gap will widen with use, so you have a good buffer up to .030 before they will need gapping again.
Welcome to the forum as well Furmacs. :waving:
