Never got a straight answer on wether I can run a double sprocket reverse with a single sprocket on the axle lol
I've been in the shop. I only give straight answers, but I'm not always immediately available.
Yes, run a single chain with your single axle sprocket. You'll use one side of the dual gearbox sprocket. It will fit and work properly both in single mode and in dual.
When (or if) you get ready to upgrade to double, the difficult part of the job has already been done and you already have the more expensive gearbox. This isn't something we're cheaping out on, it costs us more money to send the dual gearboxes. It's not a lower grade substitute, it's an upgrade.
Misalignment is a separate subject. If you run into an alignment issue, let me know and I'll send you spacing hardware and update the kit pick/pack documentation. The factory makes changes periodically between batches and I depend on customer feedback to know when there is a problem.
As far as a double 39T sprocket. I've used two 39T sprockets in dual configuration. The correct spacing is 10mm. No need to weld them. The caveat is that these sprockets aren't indexed so you'd have to let me know what you're doing before ordering, and we'll find two in inventory that match, drilled in the same locations.
