As promised i have added the outer drive shaft Bearings to the list.
These are the ones that usually get changed after the half shafts get pulled.

Did you fit the axle upside down Edgytaff?   If not, it'll be trying to go backwards.

Hi everyone thanks for the replies it's not lining up as if the prop is going over to far to the middle of the diff and not turning?  would I have to cut the axle to get the diff off centre or is it the prop has,nt got enough angle on it?  I'm a welder so not sure about it thanks

Propshafts are usually designed to run offset,
That's what UJs are for.

There is a limit as to how far a UJ will work correctly. Also UJ's should be used in pairs and must be aligned to get the phasing right.
Bikes like the GT750 usualy have a CV joint at the gearbox end so if used with a UJ at the axle end the offset should be minimal. Shortening one side of the axle will help.

Looking at a 750 drive shaft it seems to have a hookes joint or UJ so it may be as simple realigning the two joints. All the same if the prop is short then reducing the angle is a good idea.

I'm in south Wales iv tried a few things think that shorting the axle on 1 side to fetch the diff over so prop in straighter?  That's only thing I can think of now but swing arm all done and have to make new one to move diff in line now?

You should never have left, i could have popped over Penrys hill and had a look Grin, would have taken ten mins to get there not to say i won't come to Maesteg,Anyway i think it would be best if you started a thread of your own,As this has tagged onto the back of an old thread,Try and get some photos up so that we can have a good look with what's going on.
