Should I go with a SBP Tuned Pipe instead of a CNS carburetor? Then should I start working on a new bike? The reason why I doubt the reliability of this 2 stroke is because it makes some strange noises and because I have heard that China Girls can be unreliable.

I'll make sure that the motor stays upright. Hopefully the correct length of chain will fix this.
Should I do the following in this order? What's your opinion?:

a. fix chain length, fix motor lean
b. install SBP tuned pipe and sand intake/ exhaust?
c. fix carburetor clearance problem
d. sell bike and work on new frame?

Thanks again.
These 2-Stroke motors make quite a bit of noise at first,once they are fully broken in the noise will quite down a bit..

For your safety,the main concern here is you need to mount the motor solid against the frame.If you can't,a cheap and easy fix would be to find a used bike with more clearance room to solve many problems.Check your local thrift stores for used bikes.

I don't really suggest upgrading and selling your first new build until it is reliable..Once you get the motor mounted against your bike strong and solid then bring in the upgrades!
