Kit says to rack at day 14 and .098 gravity. Should I rack or wait a few days and watch the gravity everyday?

I'm a "close enough" kind of person, and if I had time today, I'd do it today. Just racking it might cause it to restart some fermentation.

Take a hydrometer reading, if you get the same reading 2-3 days in a row, go ahead and rack it.
