Default Hitch isn't level

I just installed a 2" Curt hitch and a motorcycle carrier (for my scooter), and as you can see in the picture, it's not level. Once you put the scooter on there, it gets even worse. Is this just how Curt hitches are? Or is something bent?

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. I'm pretty sure you solved this on your own by now. The only thing I can think of is are you sure the two center bolts that you snaked into the frame and bolt through the center plate on the hitch are fully tightened? You can also just put in a regular hitch bar and see how level that looks.
Also, does that carrier have to be that far from the hatch? It looks like it fits rather loosely.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The length of that bar is going to exaggerate even a minor angle on the hitch. A ball mount only extends 3-4 inches out front he hitch, this is like 3 feet. I wouldn't worry about it.
