Default Frame Slider install on my 696 - uneven??

I did a frame slider install on my 696 today, and for the life of me I could not figure out why they would not appear "even". No matter what we did, it always appeared that the right hand side (when facing forward) juts out further from the bike than the left.

When I had the bar stuck through the engine block, before the sliders themselves were bolted on, I made very sure that it looked like I had an equal amount of thread on the bar sticking out of the hole on both sides. But alas, even though we pulled it in and out a couple times, no matter what they just always looked uneven like this.

Is there maybe some purposeful reason for this? Other stuff sticks out further on the right? Or am I just screwing it up somehow...

It's on and bolted on solid, it's not going anywhere. It just looks uneven, that's all.


Left side, 8.5cm from frame to end of slider:

Right side, just under 9.5cm from frame to end of slider:

I'm not sure what brand those are, but I have Evotech sliders and they are the same length on each side.
