Primary collar

I am into my 1600 mile service on my primary and secondary. I was very careful to lay various parts out on my bench so that I would know exactly how to put it all back together.
Except for the primary collar (pic). Which way does the smaller diameter of the inside of the collar point to?

Your videos are guiding me through.
I got shims from UTV Engineering.
I am not sure where they go. Or is it a good idea to use them?

Thanks Budro2. I never go that fast. I stopped that craziness when I sold the RZR and got the superior RMAX4.
I ride slower and do some crawling. I am going to go with both shims.
Great info.

Followup: thanks for the help and suggestions. Everything went back together smoothly and the performance is definitely improved. Very happy with it.
I added UTV Engineering: 22g weights (greaseless), shims (1 mm), slippery washers, clutch sliders, and Tinkseal.

I went on a 25 mile ride this evening. Twice in low and once in high I got some "belt bark" when I pulled out from a stop. Level ground.
Any chance you installed the sliders upside down?
No. I was very careful, watching Massive Overkill's videos during each step. Made sure the "I" faced the correct way, toward the inside.

Yep. I used the tool, they were fully seated, the line faced the inside, and the cam plate moved slippery smooth.
I am super OCD.
The shims are between the collar and the fixed sheave.
As far as ut being dusty. I rode alone (other than my GSD) so I wasn't sucking in dust.
I don't really want to go back to the stock setup, the new performance is so much better. I hope I can track down the issue.
I have several hundred miles of riding planned this weekend, I hope it does ok.
I will pay close attention when the bark happens during my rides this weekend. It would be nice if it just doesn't happen again.
I will have the RMAX on some tough trails. I gotta push it to see if my buddies can keep up with me in their KRXs.
