I'm betting there is a hexagon shaft beneath the knob and you could then use a regular socket and T bar to adjust.

Hope your wrist gets better soon. Thanks again for your report.
My great pleasure!

Yesterday I rode 600kms alone and needed to adjust the suspension again. The knob got a lot better after some WD-40 and some 34C in the sun :o). I think time will tell but otherwise I'll put the old BMW knob on just for the tool under my seat :o). The suspension was crap but the tool was a great idea
