Front Sprocket Backwards?

I went to change out the front sprocket to a 13T today and when I got it off it had the grooved side facing into the case whereas the picture in the manual shows it grooved side out. Should I go with the way it came off or like the manual shows? It looks like it would make a difference in the offset. Thanks

The "groove" goes out, if u look at it from the top one side is thicker than the other the thicker side spaces it out for correct alignment, this goes in and the "groove" goes out!

When I pulled my sprocket I didn't pay attention to that so I didn't know which way to put it on. I put it on with the groove facing in after checking the old spacing for ware from the washer. I haven't had any problems but I'll look at it when I get home tomorrow.

I had some wear on the face of the sprocket where it was backwards. After talking to 700XXCRAZY I went back down and looked at it and the alignment was off. Put it back on like he said and what the manual shows and everything looks good. After riding it this morning I should have done this last year. Oh well.

I went out today with the groove facing out. My xx started making noises that weren't there before(noises related to the chain). I switched the 13t sprocket back to groove facing in and the machine is flawless. I checked the wear marks on the old sprocket and all signs point to the groove facing in. Sorry, I'm going to have to agree to disagree on this one....When in rome....Haha
