F650GS: Rear wheel alignment to make bike track straight

My 2012 F650GS pulls left when the rear wheel is aligned using the rear axle markers. To make the bike go straight when I pull my hands off the bars I had to adjust the wheel quite a bit to the left. In fact I am showing three marks on the top right scale and four marks on the top left scale. That is quite a difference. My chain slack is within spec.

What is the best way on an F650GS to check that the rear wheel is aligned correctly. I am concerned that the bike may be going straight now because I just masked a different problem.

Is there anything that I can adjust or check on the front axle? My bars always fall right when the front is unloaded but I suspect this is from the single rotor being on the right.

Thanks for any help.
