C wrench for rear sag adjustment

Just curious if anyone have their bikes delivered without the C wrench for rear shock adjustments, i'm running on a base with abs and i realise my toolkit got no C wrench, which i think came on almost all my bikes.

I've never gotten a c spanner for the shock adjustment with any of my ducs, do usually get a c spanner for the chain adjustment on single sided swingarm, can't recall if this bike came or not, I pulled the tool pouch out it's in the tool box

Not a preferred method, but if you're in a pinch you can use a flathead and hammer. Just be gentle...
