Output sprocket ??

I have a new to me 2000 tt600. I am changing the chain & sprockets on it. the rear aluminum sprocket was badly worn on the inside so after some hunting on here I found some possible culprits, one of which is the front sprocket being installed wrong.

I took the old front sprocket off and noted which side was out(thick or thin shoulder) and compared it to the new one I had.

The new sprocket I have has writing stamped on one side, I figured that side would go out, but if I put the new one on with the writing out It would be exactly the same way as the one I took off.

So I just want to double check, does anyone know if the thick or thinner shoulder goes out?

I want to say the thinner side goes in...? There should be a stamped arrow on the front sprocket, indicating the direction it's supposed to turn; otherwise yes, the writing should be on the outside. It's possible the inside of the rear sprocket could have become worn due to chain misalignment (due to having the "thinner shoulder" on the outside of the front sprocket). Or, it could just be wheel misalignment causing the wear...
