Question Towing on break in and a squeak ?

Hey guys as some will know now I bent the shaft at the mag and basically destroyed the motor ,so fitted a new kit ,yes yes I'm a slacker I know but it isn't possible to do a rebuild at the moment ,the old motor will be my port and mod motor ( excited as a kid in a candy shop)

Now the new kit has only done about 10 km from new

I've noticed the motor makes a squeak/rubbing sound on throttle down but on throttle up sounds sweet ,not that I've given her too much as she is on breakin of course a few seconds of WOT but that's all ,I believe it may have been an over tight clutch cable but if you have any other idea what it is please let me know

Now I need to take the kids to school their combined weight is about 40 kg mine about 98 kg so over all about 140 kg (308lb) and as you will see from the pics I've got a sweet carrier to take them , do you think this is a risky thing to tow them on the trailer during breakin ?
Would it put to much stress on the motor ?

Any advice would be great as I'm honestly not sure and don't want to risk killing a day old motor

Cheers guys and kindest regards
