OK, nube type question

I replaced the plugs on my Vstrom 650 (2007) and it everything is running great. Then I happen upon a thread that says the bike has 2 plugs per cylinder?? Is this correct? I only replaced two of them, and that was all I could see?? I feel pretty dumb asking but I hope someone will put my mind at ease here...

2007 and later 650s have two plugs per cylinder. One is on the side and the other is central through the top.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

The two on the tops of the cylinders are well buried. You need to remove the tank at least to get to them.

BTW: Only Noobs spell noob as nube.

There are 4 plugs altogether... You probably only did the side ones. There is also one on the top of each cylindar. So two on the top and two on the sides...
