12" you sure?

with that info it'll move the heavy beast just fine..
not fast.. but fine
in fact it'd do so with way more than 2000 lbs !!

Code:

KART
RW diameter: 12 in | 30.48 cm Total weight: 2204.62 lbs | 1000 kg
ENGINE
Original HP: 13 Asummed HP: ~13 Torque: 18.97 ft lbf | 25.71 Nm RPM: 3600
TRANSMISSION
Final ratio: 7.75:1 TC type: series 40 Lowest ratio: 18.83:1 Highest ratio: 7.75:1
PERFORMANCE
Max Wheel Torque: 357.07 ft lbf | 484.12 Nm Min Wheel Torque: 146.96 ft lbf | 199.25 Nm Acceleration: 6.33 ft/sē | 1.93 m/sē Top Speed: 16.58 mph | 26.69 km/h
So excuse me, but I think you mistook wheel diameter for rim diameter
those look like 22" on 12" rims to me
[EDIT]
shoot 12" rim bearclaws are 25" in diameter...
let's fix that...

and with that gear ratio is off

you'll need more teeth on the axle...

PROBLEMS
You might burn your clutch/belt! Gear ratio too high! Suggested final ratio: at least 9.7:1
something like 77-80 teeth should work fine on the axle if you keep the 8T TC sprocket

if you want to keep the ratio fixed..
you need a 21hp engine to move the 992 total weight I assumed above.
the more the better
