On the left side, you can see that the block is just a couple millimeters from the end of the swingarm:

Whereas on the right side, there's a good half inch from the end of the swingarm:

We measured the axle to swingarm pivot over and over, and everything seems to be correct there, but it seems weird that they'd be spaced so differently.
I'm not at home so I can't look at mine but is there a chance you have one of those blocks upside down? I had the dealer put mine on upside down last year and I had to fix it when I got home. You can't see the marks if it is upside down. Just a thought.
