They probably make a tool but every bike I ever bought did'nt come with one. Just put the bike up on a stand to get the weight off the rear shock, get a hammer and a big screw driver and back off the top lock nut, then start wacking the bottom nut until you get it where you want it then tighten the top nut back down.

Once you use a hammer and punch to loosen the lock ring, you can probably just use your hadn to turn the spring. That will turn the ring on top and you can tighten or loosen that way. I guess it is possible you can't reach it all on bike but it works on my 04 KX125.
