Hi, just took off my chain for cleaning. Now I can't remember what the the direction of the chain. Is it really important ? or I can just install it as is ? The chain is Shimano SLX 9 speed.

Thanks

Shimano has some directional chains in which you would install it with the number/ model info stampings facing out. However I don't think the 9-speed chains are directional so you should be ok installing it either way. Also don't try to reuse the old pin, use a new pin or link to reconnect the chain.
