The plug behind the seat with the dipstick on it is for the balancer....Use 10w40 good quality oil and fill it to the lower mark on the dipstick...This helps keep oil from migrating to your starter.....
The plug on the gear box is just a fill hole....There is a oil level bolt on the right side of the tranny...Take it out and fill the tranny up until oil comes out the hole....Use the same oil in it as you do the balancer, and you are set to go....
