Front and rear wheel alignment

Not sure what you mean by measuring swing arm to axle nut, but the alignment marks on the swing arm axle adjusters are notoriously inaccurate.
Only sure way is to actually check the wheels using lasers or straight edge from tyre to tyre.
You can detect mis-alignment from the way the bike feels as you tip it in - if the rear points to the left then right-handers feel OK but on left handers you feel it move left to right as you lean. And vice-versa of course.
Measurement from swingarm to rear axle
What i meant by this is, measuring from the axle nut to the front sprocket using a cable/rope. The measurement on both sides are spot on. Having this, is it still possible to go out of alignment for front and rear tyres.?
Measuring from axle to sprocket, both sides?
You got chain and sprockets both sides then???
There is a black cover on the both sides which i took as a reference point for my measurement. i.e. rear axle nut to this black round plastic cover.
Thanx mate i really appreciate your help.
