I don't see why not. Will you be running a Jack shaft? Only reason I bring this up is it might make a difference on the output sprocket or if you go belt or whatever.

I'm thinking a 10 - 12 tooth clutch and I have a 36 tooth rear sprocket.and a 44 tooth...so for top end probably the the 36 tooth 27.5 inch wheels more then likely 26 inch if I decide against the 27.5..so 27.5- 10- 36 or 26- 10-36... One of those two set ups..... Springer front end if that makes a difference. Thanks for the help in advance

With a 10 tooth clutch you will need about 100 teeth on the rear to get the gearing in the ball park.
And Have you lined up the front sprocket to the rear sprocket to see where your motor will offset to the right?
Jackshaft is your answer for both problems.
