I don't see why not. As long as the crank bolt is tight.

^ correct, as it isnt bolted to the arm you have the best of both worlds. Perfect chainline and arm clearance.

Can you run spacers between the sprocket and crank arm on spline drive sprockets/cranks?

yup, I've seen someone do it

As long as you evenly space the gap that will form between the sprocket and the crank bolt hole, you will be fine. If you don't, you'll bend your sprocket by tightening your sprocket bolt.

I do want to say, those kind of questions are why i don't understand splined vs floating axle (powerbite) style systems.

With spline, everything has to be right to make and keep shit working.
Everything comes down to millimetres. There even are half millimetre spacers in case your shit doesn't align after 2 hours, cause you need to assemble and disassemble before you even know how many spacers you'll need later.

With powerbite style axles, you can have the arm halfway on there and it might not even do real damage.

I ride Kink splined cranks now, and even though i love them, i still think splines are silly. <3 floating axles

He's running splined so there isn't a sprocket bolt needed

Which is about 8 billion times better than trying to bodge spacers between the sprocket and the arm.

Plus, it doesnt seem like any major companies make a 'between the sprocket and crankarm' spacer that is readily available. However, it seems that could be solved by cranks using a set screw style sprocket bolt.

I think I got some seized Twombolts, already hammered the shit out of them with no luck. I will try some penetrating oil and more hammering tomorrow. Help me BG.

Have the bolt a little loose and jump on the pedals a few times. If they're real stubborn maybe go do some small bunnyhops, both left foot and right foot forward. If and when they budge you may need to loosen the bolt a tiny bit more and repeat.

The major problem is that I only have the cranks mounted on frame, nothing else, so no bunny hop technique here. I will give a shot putting something like a block off wood under the bb and jump on them.

If you really wanna hammer them then do it downwards, not outwards.
