My problem is, the 27mm wrench for the rear axle is 14" long and will not fit in my fanny pack or fender bag. I was thinking about cutting it down, but I'm concerned about leverage.

I broke a shift lever once so when I got home I drilled a hole and put a bolt in it then threw it in the pack as a spare.
The stuff that gets used the most is safety wire , zip ties , and duct tape of course.

You can cut your 27mm wrench (box end) down to fit in your pack. Just use your boot for added leverage. You can do the same with a 22mm for the front axle as well. Better yet, weld these two pieces together and now you have a single tool that will do two jobs.
If you don't want to fool with all this, get a 22mm x 27mm “Rider Wrench” from Fredette Racing. It’s about 6 inches long and about 1/8" thick. You can get them through Fredette Racing, Baja Designs, MSR or other online dealers for around $17. A little pricey, but the size and weight are hard to beat.

Check the initial date on the post. Did the boad allow anonymous , unregistered posts back then ? Just a thought.
