In your Stallions Centaur owners manual is a section titled Maintenance Schedule – it is written in Thai. I wanted to check and understand what it includes so I created the Stallions Centaur Maintenance Schedule English Language.
I have done my best to understand and translate the Maintenance Schedule both truthfully and in a manner that is Anglicised.
Original Thai Language Maintenance Schedule
In basic terms it contains four parts of information.

This is my translation. Below is an image of the page I created, CLICK HERE to open & download a pdf version of the Stallions Centaur Maintenance Schedule English language. Lower down is the content written in text on this webpage. You may copy and retain this for your use. I emphasise that this is my translation and I cannot guarantee it is correct 100%.
Item #1 – Fuel Hose, tank to carburettor
Check fuel hose for any leaks, cracks or damage. Check hose clips. Replace if required. This is an interesting item to see at number 1 spot if it suggests an importance. In recent years I did some research into modern fuels and how they can degrade hoses and components quickly. Any Ethanol in the gasoline (petrol) can deteriorate hoses quickly or sooner than may be expected – it makes the hose brittle and crack easy. If the hose is poor quality it will have its life span significantly reduced with an Ethanol mix going through it. I do not know if 95 ron gasoline in Thailand has ethanol in it . But I do know that the use of Ethanol blended into 95 ron is widely retailed in UK. I then and do now, recommend a Teflon hose for ethanol blend gasoline mixes or even Aeroquip Startlite hose that is designed and tested to work with Ethanol and some other exotic fuels that are being used in drag racing.
Item #2 – Spark Plug
Inspect the spark plug, clean and set gap. If in doubt or any signs of wear, change the spark plug. The gap is 0.6 to 0.7mm and you can see more in my Owners Manual English Language, it is around three-quarters of the way down on this page.

The engine valve clearances should be checked and adjusted. Unfortunately the owner’s manual does not include any details (that I can find) regarding Valve clearances.
