Front End Alignment

Ok, so this has been bothering me for a year, and I have tried every way I know how to rememdy this to no avail, so now I am wondering if I am crazy.

Does anyone else have an issue with the front end alignment of the bars vs the front axle? I notice that it seems like my bars are about 1 degree of clockwise rotation out of alignment with my front axle. I have loosened/aligned/tightened the forks in thier triple tree clamps, I have mounted new bars (moose cr). I have played with the bar mounts. Nothing seems to be able to correct this issue.

Am I crazy? Are my eyes crooked in my head? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I should also mention that the handling does not seem affected and tire wear appears normal after 6k miles.

Mine is the same way but to the left. I think it is either the way I am looking at it or the front fairing is not 100% straight. It rides straight so I am not really worried about it. Most manufactures state that if it is within 10mm that it is within spec.
