I wouldn't increase the pressure for only 2 oz of coolant loss, just check the level and refill prior to any ride. 2 oz is insignificant and not worth increasing my pressure/temperature for. I removed my bottle some time back without changing caps with similar results and no problems. Just don't idle her for any extended periods. :)
