Also.....
83 trunk mount is set back farther allowing for more passenger room.
83 pegs are wider.
83 Standard and Interstate speedo goes to 150.
83 trans is geared higher for highway cruising.
83 engine guards offer better protection.
83 forks have factory fork brace.

83 seat is longer, although 82 seat will fit.

83 uses external ballast resistor at coil, most 82's have ballast internal to spark units
