Take the muffler (you can't get the lower bolt out with the muffler there) and rear tire off. Undo the bolt at the swing arm amd push down on the swingarm to release the lower mount.
Unbolt the top mount, take the shock out.
Takes about 10m round trip.

Still, this makes spending the $250 for the hydraulic preload seem like a good plan
