Welcome to the forum, Wolf. We're glad you've joined us here.

Typically you'll see little resistance from the drive system with a centrifugal clutch. When the friction pads of the clutch are disengaged, as when the engine isn't running or up to the required RPM, the drive system will simply free-wheel. Of course there can be some parasitic drag from things like the drive chain, sprockets, bearings, etc.
We would need to know more about your proposed drive system to give you a definitive answer. If possible please post a photo of the system you are planning to use.

Good luck.
