Pressure Spikes when 1st aired up...

When I first air up the Quest I've noticed a huge pressure spike. Anywhere from 200-250psi (I currently have the LPR set at 95psi), then after I take the 1st shot it is OK and doesn't happen again. I've taken apart the HPR and LPR regulators to try and correct the problem, but it is still happening (although less than before).
All of the seals in both regs look good, no noticeable nicks or damage. The only thing that I saw was the seal that is imbedded into the pin inside of the LPR seems like it needs to be replaced. Is that seal replaceable or do I need to pick up a new part? Any other recommendations?

It's a type of Scrader valve - they are normally pretty cheap to buy as a whole unit.

Ok. I also emailed FEP. When they get back to me I'll ask about getting that part from them. It should be a really easy fix. I've also been looking at the trouble shooting guide and it recommends replacing some of the o-rings on the bolt and guide pin....so I might try that as well.
