2003 XR100 and 2005 RMZ250 questions.

Fellows I have a couple of questions:

*2003 Honda XR100:
So I bought my wife a small bike for her to learn. The bikes was not running when I bought it, so far, I have clean the carb, change the gas to "new" gas and changed the oil. I am planning to get a new spark plug tomorrow.
I have managed to have it running, but as soon as I cut the throttle it goes off. I hope that with the new spark plug it will start with less effort, but not sure if that will make the bike to keep running, any advice?


*2005 Suzuki RMZ250:
Last time I went to Ultimate I noticed that the bike was dropping oil. I have identified where the oil is coming from (pic below). There is a "hole" where I have circled in red; I believe there should be a lid of some sort there, right? Can you let me know if that is true and the name of the piece?

Thanks a lot for your help

Is the air filter clean on the 100? It may be your jetting or the air fuel screw.
On the RMZ that looks like where the decompressions lever goes in.

Thanks Man, I will clean the air filter on the XR100.

I'll look into it on the RMZ, once the bike is running, the bike expels, kind of spits, oil from there.
