so i just got my first stand up and its a 1989 650sx kawasaki and i have a few general questions since i have not found much information at all. i ran it today and it ran great. when i got done there was a little bit of water down in the hull. is there a drain plug or bilge or what? also it ran great but when i got home a couple hours later the cylinders were still warm. is that normal because its enclosed? is there any kind of oil or gear oil on the motor (not the oil that mixes with the fuel)? any good tips about this thing and any general tips? thanks a lot, shane

There is a siphon bilge on that machine. It is connected to the reduction nozzle through the hull. As water passes through the reduction nozzle it creates a vacume that draws water out of the hull. Inside the hull at the bottom rear near the driveshaft is a small white box, this is the pickup for the bilge.

These motors will keep warm for a while, nothing to worry about.

No oil in the motor except for the 2-stroke, mixed in the fuel or injected.
