Both of the dogbones are inverted on your swingarm.
If you flip them, you should have alot better fitment. (I'm not talking about changing from one side to another, i mean flip one end to the other)

And I have washers(spacers) in each gap.

Please post up your findings, when you can. I'd like to know how it works out for you...
Unfortunately, I thought I had it figured out too. when reassembling I tried flipping them around and it did not work. Here is a friends bike, although he doesn't clean his bike much, you can see the orientation of the dog bones and the gap, although his looks smaller.If you'd like to put up a pic of yours, I would appreciate it.

'twas ever thus
