2014 Multi Exhaust header gasket - which way round?

Hi,
Some help needed here. I am just fitting a full term I system to my multi and in the process of removing the old exhaust I dislodged the header gasket. It has a raised dish surface on one side and a corresponding Hollow on the other side. Which way round do I fit it?
Cheers

I can't recall, are both surfaces the gasket mates against flat?.....if so it doesn't matter - ideally the gaskets should be replaced but if this is the first time the headers have been removed you should be ok.

Edit: just checked the manual, no reference to the gaskets being used in any particular orientation.



Cheers

Hi Andy,
Thanks for posting! In the end I followed the orientation in the photo. Off to get the ECU mapped by Wilf @ Motorapido tomorrow. I cannot wait to see what the bike rides like after!
Cheers
