Looks like the 2013 design is the same as the prior years.

And since I don't have a socket or anything large enough for the bushing and stuff to go through - aborting.

Someone asked previously... Basically pop the seat, remove two of the fairing torx (T25), the 4 bolt heads w/ washers (8mm) and 4 zip ties that are holding the wiring harness down. There's a round doo-hickey that gets removed, as does the connect with the two wires. The other end of the two wire connector is removed with a screw driver pressing a release lever to the outside from the center (directly under the oval portion that connects, allows it to slide towards the front of the bike). Slide the plastic thing towards the rear and attack the large bolt with a T55. At some point it'll slip and the shock will tighten against bolt. Lean some weight against the rear (I was on a center stand) and the bolt will wiggle loose.

And now back to 100NM... Sigh.
