That won't work, you need way more gear reduction than that and how did you plan to keep you feet from getting beat to dead by the pedals when the motor turned the pedals?

Check out SickBikeParts 4-stroke jackshaft kit.

And that is with a gear reduction transfer case, you are planning to run direct off the engine so you need even more reduction.
