DON'T GO BY THE MARKS ON YOUR SWING ARM.
They are NOT accurate. Kawasaki in particular is notorious for inaccurate notches.
You do have some leeway.
Get your bike up on a wheel stand, spin the rear wheel and look down the length of your chain. See how it interacts with the sprocket. It should come off clean and straight. That's the only way to tell, not the marks. If you are not comfortable doing that, get a yard stick, and run it down the chain to check alignment, see the post above or buy an alignment tool. Those marks are just a rough guide.
