Then your rear wheel is not pointing straight (assuming the front wheel is pointing absolutely straight ahead).
The alignment marks on the swingarm (for adjusting the chain) must be verified before you can trust them - measure both sides from the swingarm pivot bolt to the rear axle - should measure the same. If not, them make them the same by using the chain adjusters, and make note of which side is off and by how much.
then with the rear wheel straight and the front end aligned (wheel, triple clamps, bars) if your measurment are off the frame is tweaked... but it can be slightly off and you wouldn't notice unless it was a state of the art road burner operating on the edge, just for fun run a level acrossed the edges of your rims (up&down) front the same as the back? you can drive yourself crazy if you let some of this stuff interfer with your riding enjoyment :lol:
