No the 1983 carburetor will not work on 1982 model.as in 1983 models there comes two types of carburetor one is normal and other is improved.if the 1983 carburetor is of improved version then it will not support.-------------- as per the company.
The 1983 model Vision fixed most of the faults, with an "improved" carburetor eliminating the "stumble", air adjustable front forks firming up the ride and improving the roadholding. A full fairing, with adjustable hot and cold air vents, effectively shielded the rider. With the improved carburetor and minor internal adjustments, the engine's strengths became apparent: it had enormous torque at all revs, and would pull from idle in top gear. Despite the 10,000 R.P.M. redline, the oversquare bore and short stroke kept the piston speed low, with the result that the engine always sounded relaxed, even at peak revs. --------------- The Vision was the first Yamaha model to feature automotive-style downdraft carburetors with the air cleaner box mounted atop the carburetors, as opposed to most motorcycles' sidedraft carburetors with their side-mounted air cleaners. While downdraft carburetors flow air into the engine more efficiently than sidedraft carburetors, the height of the carburetors and their airbox required Yamaha to design a large tunnel into the bottom of the gas tank. While the tank holds 17 liters(4.5 gallons) of fuel, it looks much larger thanks to the tunnel and suggests that the bike is top-heavy—which it is not.--------------- still i suggest you to get it confirmed by your local bike repair-servicing garage before going for 1983 carb .because most of the 1983 version bikes use improved version of carb . ---------- this will help.please do rate the solution.keep updated for any further assistance if more help required.thanks.

My 1982 yamaha xz 550 vision keeps sputtering, whats the problem? example, i start in first gear, and as im accelerating the bike seems to jurk forward and sputter, could that mean there bad fuel...


This could also be caused by a faulty plug cap or coil.

Seeing that the coils are much easier to test than the carbys are to remove,strip,clean,re-fit,adjust mixtures & syncronize,I suggest you start there. (see my tip on how to test motorcycle twin coils-in tips & tricks).

Just to get an idea what is going in you could also try & remove both spark plugs & compare them to each other.
Is one black & sooty? - too rich- poor combustion
Is one oily?-- not firing or mechanical problem
Hope this helps
