Tire pressure


I put some new Heidenau K60's on my BMW 1200 GSA recently, and from what I understand, tire pressure fluctuates with temperature.

The front tire moves between 37-33 psi (higher when being ridden, lesser when kept in the cold garage)
The back tire moves between 39-32 psi (same as above)

average temp here is 65 degrees F.

I have reason to believe my back tire has a slow leak, due to a small tear I put into it, trying to get the tire on myself. (i ended up taking it to a shop and have it machined) The shop said the tear was a concern, but they put the tire on and checked for leaks, and said it should be ok.

Since the tire pressure fluctuates so much, its hard to tell if the tire is losing pressure.

Is there better way to test for super slow leaks? (Dunking it might not reveal anything if the leak is so minor)
