So I have entered the world of 48 spline cranks and in my endless intelligence have mounted the Left arm on the Right.  So left arm is with the sprocket.  Right arm, non drive side. 

Question;  Does it matter?  I know R pedal with R crank arm and L with Left.  But will it matter? 

Flame away, make fun of me I know I deserve it.

The reason cranks are set up that way is the threading of your pedals.  If you run it the way you've got it your pedals will have a chance of loosening themselves while you ride.
