ive looked but can't seem to locate where it states how much PSI I should pump into the shock for my weight. I know its not in the manual area.

The amount of air pressure that you should put into your shock will vary from bike to bike. Even for riders who weigh the same, it can be different. (Your distribution of mass as well as your body position on the bike will likely be different from someone else who weighs the same.)

As mentioned by Gokart2, you set the air pressure by measuring sag. Fox describes this procedure in their manuals. If you do a search of this forum, you'll find the answer as well.

Here is the manual for the 08 RP23. For a different year, simply changed the 08 to xx in both spots it appears in the link. Edit: there is no recommended pressure for the RP23. Sorry about that. I have a Triad and the manual lists recommended pressures. By setting the sag according to the guide found in the manual, you will be right around there recommended pressure. I found that I liked mine 8-10 psi higher than they recommend. Its is really a personal setting but the recommended pressure is a good starting point to dial in that perfect pressure.
