Fork Seal Which Way??

Hi There,
Replaced the fork seals on my 312R ('08) not that long ago and have found that they both are leaking slightly. I am replacing them again as I write this and have wondered if I put them in upside-down the first time. The manual doesn't seem to give enough detail (photographic or written) as to which is the correct way. I note that the two contact surfaces (lips) are slightly different diameters. Question is does the smaller diameter face down (when on the bike) or vise versa?
Thanks for your help in advance.

Steve

Thanks Flyboyk,
''Spring to the oil" that'll be easy to remember in future.
Cheers

Thanks Noel,
I had to pull the forks off again this morning as I was impatient waiting for the answers yesterday and put them back in the incorrect way.
Same old story "haste makes waste".
