I’ve had mixed experiences with Rikon CS, but it might be worth it working through it with them. I’ve had passable success with my 10-26, but with all the factors of blade drift to control for I couldn’t really say what’s behind the discrepancy. I do slide the ball bearings very tight on the blade. I’ve found finding the right tensioning helps too. I’m not sure how reliable the scale on the machine is. And feed rate influences it as well.

As for my experience with Rikon CS, some advice: One administration/employee group (since departed, about a year ago) was very responsive, offering up immediate replacements/advice. Most recently they were completely radio silent on several emails regarding the 17” VS. With that in mind, you might try calling them to force their attention.
