The shock must be disconnected from the link and the bottom shaft locknuts loosened and the entire shaft/clevis rotated to change the length of the shock. Did you purchase the shock new? If so, it has reasonably good instructions that came in the box. http://www.ohlins.com/pdf/07241-02.pdf
It should be done with the wheel on. You will need to "hang" the bike or suspend it from the rear subframe, as a rear stand supports the swingarm (which will be swinging free once the shock is disconnected). I use a steel pipe under the subframe bars and a pair of sawhorses to keep the bike upright. A piece of 2 by 4 under the rear wheel allows you to take the load off of the swingarm while you are disconnecting the shock. It's a case of getting the wheel/swingarm in a neutral position to unload the linkage enough to pull out the mounting bolt. You will probably need to take out at least one of the other 2 bolts on the triangle plates to access the bottom of the shock.
I know it sounds a bit complicated, but once you figure it out, it should only take about an hour from start to finish.

New SP2 maybe ?
