I just bought a new bike. When I pressurize the rear shock (which is a Fox shock) and engage the auto sag feature via the red valve, blue liquid/oil comes out. Does anyone know if this is normal? Is this part of the break in process?

Blue is ok. Red is bad.

The blue fluid is the lube that is inside of the air can. A little will leak out of the air seals or the auto sag button sometimes. If you see red then the damper seals have blown and you need a full rebuild.
