It can be pretty tricky to get it perfect. It's hard to tell from the pictures how the spacers are setup. Try putting the larger brake pad spacer inside if it's not already.

It can a problem with the housing under the bartape. Check to see if the ends of the housing are seated into both levers fully and really open up and de-bur the housing.

The other thing that can make a huge difference is how much tape you did or didn't use to hold the housing to the bar. Use tons of it....a good test is to pull the brake lever while holding the other hand tight around the bend of that same side of the bar. Can you feel the housing flex or creep when you do this? If so it probably needs to be held down better.

Post pictures of the secondary levers and the new position of the straddle cable if you can.
