The rear camber bolts will give you half a degree of adjustment. It's recommended that camber be below 1.5 degrees. You might be ok, just keep a very close eye on inner tire wear on the rear. Also I don't comprehend inches, and haven't seen a machine that uses inches since I left school. So I couldn't tell you about the front.

What I run though is, un-adjusted camber in the rear. 0 degree toe in the rear, and slight toe out in the front. So I'd say that you're doin' pretty good for a good all around alignment.
