Which footpeg is left or right?
Not such a big deal, but I notice in the picture that the number of cleats differ in design from one footpeg to the other near where the footpeg attaches to the frame. Is the one with more cleats for the shift side of the bike? (the left side) And what is the reasoning behind less number of cleats on one compared to the other? Just curious because I will be ordering a set.

The reason behind one of the pegs having less cleats or teeth, is because on most models the kick start lever will actually hit the peg when starting the bike. Since not all the pegs are the same for each model, this can vary depending on what bike you have.

You've probably already ordered these and don't need an answer but anyway, don't worry you cannot install the pegs wrong. Regarding the number of cleats, the right side has a "blank" space to accommodate the kick starter. On most bikes, it usually hits that spot.
