Leave it alone:

1) See comment above.

2) Time will compact the sediment, and you will actually get more beer leaving it alone.

3) Unless there is a real reason for racking, you just add additional risk of contamination and aeration. Beer can sit on fruit for weeks/months with no problems.
You stole the words from me.

One more thing though, maybe add some pectin haze enzyme, it seems to help quite a bit in my fruit beers.

Nothing really, but the OP was looking for a way to clear his/her beer.
