I think CMW has a very good service manual to buy. If you are more interested in enfield technic you can buy Pete Snidals repair manual, which is the "holy bible" for all enfield enthusiasts.

According to the Owner's Manual, and with the following exceptions, each maintenance item should be addressed every 3000kms:
Inspect Inlet/exhaust valve seating: Every 15000kms
Decarbonize Cylinder head: Every 15000kms
Decarbonize exhaust system: Every 15000kms
Earth wire eyelet : every 12000kms
Steering Ball races: every 12000kms
Replace Gear Box Oil: every 9000kms (and check it every 1000kms)
Spoke tension: every 6000kms
Wheel rim run out: every 6000kms
Rear brake cams: every 6000kms

Hand levers and kick starter pivot: every 1000kms or earlier as needed
Check Fork Oil: every 1000kms or earlier as needed
Check front disc brake fluid level: every 1000kms or earlier as needed
Adjust rear brake play: every 1000kms or earlier as needed
Adjust clutch free play: every 1000kms or earlier as needed
Adjust decompressor cable play: every 1000kms or earlier as needed

See my RE Notes (signature) for one example of a maintenance regiman.

I can scan in the owner's manual maintenance schedule if it would be helpful....
