Upon starting the demo in vr mode with an oculus rift CV1 the left and right headset movement is inverted. Ie. if I look left the screen moves to look right and the inverse happened looking right.

Any ideas?

This is not something we've heard other reports of. Have you tried quitting & restarting everything (X-Plane, Oculus Home, etc)? Tried restarting the computer? There can be a lot of dependent processes to make it all work, so sometimes restarting the computer is the simplest way to get a clean start. 

Do resetting to default preferences help at all? If nothing has, you can file a bug report here with a copy of the log.txt.

I've seen one more report in the forums https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/143321-inverted-movement-with-rift/. I messaged this person and they said they were unable to find a solution and ended up getting a refund on their copy.

I've restarted a few times and haven't tweaked any settings since installing. Very odd. Will file a bug report.
