Adjusting Belt Drive

9000 miles.
I noticed my belt was at its limit (.25"). I adjusted it today. Easy job. Remove bags, remove exhaust, loosen axle nut and adjust belt. Tighten adjuster lock nuts to 12lb and axle nut to 130 ft/lb. Reassemble and ride. I did notice on mine the left side was 1 mark off from the right side. It came from the dealer like that.

I know my marks don't match up.
When they replaced my back tire they had them matching, but when I checked it, the tire didn't track straight, readjusted it, and now the belts tracks correctly on the pulley.
