How does this engine work? Answered

I have a mini moto engine which i'm going to use to power a go kart type thing. I need help identifying the different intakes as it looks like there are three holes. I think the middle one is to attatch a throttle cable, but what of the other 2? One already has a pipe attatched to it (right hand side) and the other (left) looks like it has a fuel tap. I'd guess fuel and oil, but I always thought that had to be premixed, so shouldn't there only be one hole? Any help in identifying the different bits would be appreciated.
