if you can't secondary the beer in a new vessel, like a carboy, I'd actually let it sit a full 3 weeks, then go ahead and rack to the bottling bucket. that'll get you reasonably clear beer.
also, if you find the Cooper's kit made a weak tasting beer, don't let that be your indicator of all homebrew. I started with those kits and got very disillusioned with home beer making, and only made mead.
once i started using better extract kits with hops and no corn sugar...I got real excited about beer making.
