In theory, the 'notches' aren't really trust worthy anyway. They do make us feel better when they match on both sides though, don't they?
I learned to spin the wheel and look at where the chain rides on that rear sprocket (as you sit behind the bike.) If the chain is centered, you are golden. If the chain is closer on the LEFT or RIGHT side of the sprocket, you are not correct, regardless of what the swingarm marks 'say'. Gotta move the axle (one side or the other) in or out until you get the chain centered on the sprocket when you spin the wheel again.
