Default Custom Bike Problems

Hey! I am building a fat tire (mongoose dolomite) custom frame and gas tank bike. My mandatory specs were that it had to have disc brakes front and rear, 4 stroke motor, and shift with no manual clutch (shifter kit from Bike Berry). The problem I am having seems to be that the 49cc motor (also from Bike Berry) is under powered for the gearing and is frying my centrifugal clutches. I am thinking about going with a 150cc Gy6 motor. Do you think this is the right thing to do? Perks to the Gy6 motor are that parts are readily available, speed will be more comfortable, and a kick starter. My build is more of a motorcycle style than a pedal bike.
