    The /7 frame is different than the /6.

    The /7 frame was stiffened and the /6 vetter mount will not work on a /7 frame due to a cross gusset.
    The /7 mount is tough to come by.
    The/6 mount seem to come up occasionally.

    Tranny needs wearing in?

    You said the bike is low miles.. The tranny may be a bit tight.
    I suggest you consider that it is not worked or broken in yet. Getting on it, so to speak is tough on new stiff units.

    all of the above plus...

    You may have to re-align the shoes to the disk. Upon re-assembly they may have become mis-aligned.

    Just a little twee-king may help.
