The '82 1/4" fuel line goes from the petcock to the carb....(install an in-line fuel filter between them)...with a vacuum line going from the petcock to the vacuum off take, located on the front carb rubber manifold, (the smaller of the two brass tubes!!).

How much oil and what kind 1982 yamaha vision


It will take about 2 quarts. Don't you have a owners manual with your motorcycle?

Drain the oil, replace the plug, add one quart. check the dip stick, slowly continue to fill until you get to the proper level as indicated on the dip stick.

If you have not made friends with the guy or gal at the Yamaha Parts Department, you should go do that now. They will be a great source of information to you in the future.

Find and use your owners manual.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

Hi, Renee and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.
11. Faulty fuel pump.

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

I purchased a new gas tank for my '82 yamaha vision 550. the replacement tank is from an '83 and there seems to be 3 inlets on the '83 tank(fuel or vaccum) and 2 on the '82 tank i'm replacing. Just...


The 83 has a fuel return line intended to prevent vapor lock , by circulating cooler gas through he fuel pump. You can cap off the fuel return hose and it will cause no problems. The carbs on the 82 differ quite a bit from the 83 and the petcocks are not interchangeable, with out a lot of work.
