You might want to ask the mods to transfer this to the mechanic's forum. I think you'll get the best feedback there.

The shift cable can be routed to either the front of the bar or the back, depending on which way you route the cable out of the "Y" under the back of the hood. There's an explanation and drawing on the installation instruction sheet in Step 3 under "Installation of the shifting cable".

See this PDF:

It's tough to tell from the drawing, but as soon as you peel back the hoods, it will be perfectly obvious.
