I purchased my Yamaha cross core from a lbs and had the same problem. I brought it back to the shop and let them do the adjustment. It took only a few minutes, but this way it was done right. I would ask Rad if they would cover the cost of you bringing it to a lbs to adjust it. Any decent bike shop will be able to do it .
 
Loosen the 2 bolts holding the caliper to the frame. Don’t remove them, just loosen them a bit so the caliper assembly can wiggle a bit.

Squeeze the brake handle to engage the brake. This will act to center the caliper assembly relative to the rotor. Do NOT release the brake handle.

Now tighten the 2 caliper bolts (while still squeezing the brake lever). After the bolts are tightened sufficiently, you may release the brake lever.

The pads should now be centered relative to the rotor. You can adjust the pad spacing if necessary (wider or closer) by using an Allen wrench to on the pad assembly. Turn clockwise to close the gap, counter-clockwise to make the gap wider.

Good Luck!! - RangerDave

I used the same technique on my rear brake on my Step-Thru Commuter in my initial set-up. It worked beautifully. Much recommended.
