    V5 axle too big for dropout

    Greetings e-bikers, I have an old Gary Fisher tandem I attempted to mount a Smart Pie V5 on its' front wheel, but ran into a snag. The axle of the aforementioned V5 is 1/16" wider than the dropouts are currently. If I'm running 48volts, should I be concerned with grinding out, lessening the integrity of, the dropouts? Do you know of a hub motor with a slightly slimmer axle?
    Thanks,
    Rt

    Put the hub in the rear and run 52v

      Going to run into the same narrow dropout problem by putting it in rear.

    A proper torque arm would be the most important piece. 1/16th of material shouldn't matter, however we can't see what your forks look like so it makes an evaluation difficult.
