yes they are drain plugs so DO NOT FORGET to close the holes when you go on the water or you will sink lol dont wont be good and when u going home remove the plugs so any water in the hull will drain out and no there is no fluids you have to change... are you going with premix??

on the tigershark i wont premix it has a seperate oil cap on the yamaha i have to premix seem like a pain to do it though if you have anysuggestions on oil il take them i went to bike shop they sold me a gallon of marine 2 stroke for 30$ seems high ,from what i figured out one of the holes is for the bilge pump and ithink the other is for if you want to hook a hose to it but would that one get plugged when in water ?

oh ok yes you leave them alone DO NOT BLOCK THEM the left one is the pisser takes the water from the motor and then out that port and the right one is for the pump. if i was you i would go premix cuz them oil pumps do go bad and you will never know when its about to go.... do you even know if the pump is good?

a thats no good. if that pump goes say bye to ur motor so if i was you i really would buy a block off kit for around 10.00 and go premix 40:1 and your motor will last a really long time
