athena piston facing right direction?

i just got an athena 700 kit and the piston says matour on top and has an arrow pointing one direction a nd there is a b on the other side of the top of the piston. if u hold the piston so the b is right side up the arrow points upand there are holes on the piston skirt under the B facing the exhaust. would this be the right way to install? on this web site it had a kit install page for general mopeds and they installed an airsal kit but it said if there are any windows on skirt they should face up? help me please i dont want ta ruin my kit installing wrong…...

make it so the ports on the piston are upwards towards the intake.

An arrow on a piston should always point in direction of the exhaust port. If there is IN stamped on the piston, should be in direction of the intake port.
