Default New to forum; new build; couple of questions

I'm in the process of my first build using a 4-stroke 49cc Hua Sheng engine fitted to a EZ Motorbike Q-Matic drive system. The pulley on the Q-Matic drive's centrifugal clutch accepts a #41 chain. I have a hub-mounted 56-tooth sprocket on my rear wheel, and that sprocket's teeth are smaller than those on the clutch. So the #41 chain can move somewhat from side-to-side on the big sprocket. (The 56-tooth rear sprocket is more similar in tooth size to the pedal-side sprockets on the bike.)

What are the implications of running the bike with this setup? Can I? Should I?

I'd greatly appreciate any help with this.
