The arrow points forward, the rotation direction. Meaning both pads front and rear point toward the front of the bike.

The L pads go on the left side of the calipers (outside pad on the drivers side, inside pad on the passenger side) and the R pads go on the right side (inside of the drivers caliper, outside of the passenger one).
Can you put brake pads on upside down?
You would have to be a complete tard to put them in upside down or backwards. I say the answer is NO. The caliper pegs go through the pad holes holding them in place. The pads also arch to match the rotor radius.
Can you put brake pads on backwards?
Can brake pads be put on wrong? Yes! … If the pads are installed incorrectly, problems may arise in the future when driving the car. And safety is always going to be a priority when operating a motor vehicle, so the brakes always need to be in good, working order.
