I recently purchased a Yamaha Mint. I believe it is a 50cc, but little is known about it. I was told that a previous owner moved to the USA from Japan and had the scooter shipped. The Mint was only sold in Japan. Trouble is I need a carbuerator and air box for it and I can't read Japanese. Does anyone know if the Razz or Riva were like the Mint enough that parts will fit? I also don't know the year model of the scooter.

can you find the engine code on the crankcase? That would help a lot. A few pictures too.
This page has what looks like a Razz/Mint as the same but they might have split at a later date.

Because it looks like the Mint kept going late into the '90's. where as the Razz was stopped after the Mid/Late '80's.

I've attached a picture. It does look a lot like the Razz, maybe it's the same they just kept making it overseas after it stopped in the US. I'll look at the crankcase later and see what I can find. It won't start anymore. The previous owners removed the air box and installed a fuel petcock, which when left open leaks gas when the engine is off. Im guessing an air box and new carb will fix this. Maybe the float is stuck open and their solution was to install the petcock.

Update: I managed to find an air box used in Japan on eBay, so I've ordered that.

This metal thing with 3 ports on it that is not being used. What is that and what connects to it? There were some extra lines on my carb. that i suspect may go there as vacuum lines. Also, it doesn't look like there is a fuel filter, anywhere should there be one?

I've cleaned out the carb and drained the gas and it is running much better. It does bogg at full throttle but I think its the stupid aftermarket air cleaner. I'd like to the leave the fuel petcock open all the time and not worry about leaking gas. I suspect when these 3 ports are connected right and the stock air box is all connected right that wont happen.

That would be the Yamaha OEM style Petcock. A Picture from an '88 Razz (https://www.cheapcycleparts.com/oempart ... /fuel-tank) The big nipple at the back goes to the fuel tank the top one supplies the carb with fuel and the bottom one is the vacuum line from the carb. the fuel filter I believe is apart of the petcock but you can always add an in line filter.
