swingarm bearings

Hi there . I am writing this in regards to replacing the swingarm bearings on a 2000 Rm 250. It is actually my buddies bike and his swingarm adjuster bolts were frozen. so our other buddie had a swingarm from one of his other bikes he let him have. The bearings were shot, rusted . So I beat them out with a socket and wanted to know if the new bearings go in a certain way. Each end of the bearings look different. Do they go in from the inside or outside or doesnt it matter. I myself have been riding for years and just grease mine annually and I have never had any problems. Thanks

They can go in either way, just push them into the middle of the bore.
