You're regulator is cranked up very high. The right gauge almost reads 10..but that's 10 kg/cm^2. It's recommended that you run it at 10-25psi. You're at nearly 140 psi. This will make adjusting the regulator with the needle valve very difficult.
Also, with such a high pressure rating you run into a danger of breaking your right gauge.

I run my regulator at 20 psi.

Good job Snyper. Tifi is indeed running PSI way too high. Read the inside ring of numbers, you should only need 20psi.

Now, one thing I have noticed on both my Milwaukee's...they take a while to break in. The first day or two you'll have to keep turning up the right gauge pressure cuz it'll sink back to 0psi every 4-6 hours.

Eventually though, it'll stay put, and your bubble rate will remain steady.

Former advisor and planted tank geek...life's moved on though.
