Starter Relay - 2 pin connector

The starter relay has a two pin electrical connector with a B/Y wire and a Y/R wire. Does it matter how the connector is connected since it can be turned over and connected either way? Got a little forgetful when replacing the relay.

EDITED;
As if sitting on bike looking down at mine from above, with Battery Cable and Cable to Starter connections near the top, the lower smaller two pin white spaded connector has the B/Y towards rear of bike, the Y/R on terminal towards the front of bike.

....hope this helps

Thank you for your response. I don't know if your relay is mounted differently, but mine is mounted on its side. Sitting on the bike looking down, all of the connections are pointed toward the rear of the bike. Let's try this: Looking at the connections on the relay with the two "spade" connections below the two "pole" connections (the two pole connections being the battery cable and cable to the starter connections), which wire would be on the left and which on the right? Sorry to take so much time with this but I appreciate your help.

I looked at the relay again and now think I understand when you described the battery cable and cable to starter connections "near" the top. They are more in the middle and the connections I am concerned about are at the bottom. So B/Y would be on the left and Y/R would be on the right. It turns out I understood your original post well enough. Again, thanks.
