    Setting auto-sag?

    So just picked up my 2013 Epic Comp which now has autosag on the rear shock, so far I've found three different directions on how to set it:
    1. Specialized owners manual: Set to riders weight plus 100 lbs. prior to hitting autosag button.
    2. Specialized Youtube video: Set to riders weight, then hit the autosag...
    3. On the shock: Set to 300 lbs prior to hitting autosag........

    So which is the right one?
    thanks,
    Zach

    After setting the auto-sag, the rebound has to be set to almost one or two clicks from slow to keep from bucking. With that rebound setting it makes the rear feel stiff and do not get complete travel. Am used to more supple and smooth travel with the RP 23. Any thoughts?

    My thought is over time the rebound starts to go away on the Brain products and you'll need to dial in the rebound control more and more to minimize the bucking...that is until the shock or fork is sent back to Spesh for servicing. The problem I'm having now is the rebound knob "self adjusting" itself over the course of a ride. Each ride I start off at 6 clicks from full hard and when I return the setting is now at 10 clicks from full hard. This has happened on the last three rides and wasn't a problem when the bike was new.
