Fork Installation Question

I had a question regarding fork installation. I picked up some Ohlins Fgrt's and wanted to do the install myself but I had a question regarding the orientation when you mount them in the triple clamp. Is there a specific orientation they should be mounted in or it does not matter because the bottom tube can be rotated? I have watched several videos and read the ohlins manual but neither one mentions this, Im guessing because its not important.

Hope that makes sense?

There is an Ohlins badge on the side, make that outside central position, there is profiling on the forks and will sit right if you do the above. If you get stuck or do not have the badge i will send a pic of mine, in fact look up my threads there are pictures of when I fitted mine.
Left side has Abs sensor.

The cut out on the top tube needs to parallel to the direction of travel, so when leaned over, it provide additional flex. In other words, the cut out need to face the side of the bike, not forward/ rear facing
