Default Need Help Fast

I am modifying an old BMX bike to have a 3hp motor. I am thinking of using a 12 tooth clutch and a 72 tooth sprocket. The tire is 20" in diameter. I am 150lb and was wondering before i buy the clutch if this will be sufficient to pull me around and up medium sized hills.

I'd say so. You might get the 11 tooth clutch if you can.
