The orientation is shown by the arrow in the lower right of the diagram. These parts fill the gap between the side fairing and the frame near the front of the gas tank. They fit into the space like a wedge and sit almost vertically, so the flat part on the left of your picture would be exposed. Good luck, this is hard to comprehend without seeing it on the bike. In this picture, your part is on the front end of the side piece, just behind the fork tube (you can't see it).
