Hi Skillo,
I don't know either, but the Plundering Pirate Paul of Phuket posted this on the Yamaha R1 shock upgrade as the finished article.
It has the arch in a different spot to your's.
So did you get the height rise expected ?

. Yes It’s definitely higher than standard, with the arches in the standard position it lowered the suspension, this made be think they where lowering links 🤔

I contacted BikeFarm who confirmed they where correct.

It would have been nice of them to put 'arrows' on the parts labeled "FRONT" so install wasn't a questionable event. Looking at it, you could rotate those plates to any of three positions and it would 'work' but with slightly different geometry at each position. Hopefully they took your inquiry as a 'hint' that they should send instructions or label things better for future sales.

That’s what I thought to be honest, the links can only go two ways due to one of the holes having a smaller diameter, fingers crossed there ok 🤞🏻
