I usually wait at least a week before racking to secondary. Fermentation should be complete before you move to secondary, so the real judge of when to rack is a steady specific gravity over several days.
One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.
Karma said it....after fermentation has completed...Secondary is for clearing...so if the grav hasn't changed for 3 days then it is racking time!
