Space Between Wheel & Forks ???

Hi, I just recently had the forks receiled on my 01 SP1 and was wondering if someone could tell me if the gap I am seeing is normal. I am a little new the RC game and just wanted to cross my t's and dot my i's. I have not noticed any difference in the ride. Pictures below. Thanks for any and all input.

I can't tell from your pictures but do you have the spaces on each side that go between the fork lowers and wheel bearings?

Long spacer goes to riders right, and short space to riders left.
Index mark on axle should be flush with outside of fork bottom.
Wheel should be equidistant between forks, with rotors centered with calipers.
