Question motor out of box,,, any cause for alarm

OK so here is my 1000th post since ordering my stuff and i guess i worry a bit however i planned on seeing a mangled piece of metal when i opened my new engine kit after hearing some horror stories. Everything seems to be decent. The few things i did notice is A) one bolt on the rear mount is pretty tweeked, B) the "waterproof" boot on the plug wire is cracked and dryrotted, C) wiggleing the sprocket sounds loose in the piston chamber, i think that is normal though.D) the cluth arm has 0 tension but i assume thays normal and will change when wires et. are mounted... just figured i'd see what you guys say as my bike wont be here foir 2 days...and do you suggest (if there is an upgrade) a new cdi and wire... do they make the cdi box that the wire can be replaced easily... any other suggestions or any rituals to share with me from when you guys receive new motors.... As always, you guys rock.....
