74 El Tigre/75 Suzuki Fury hood vents
« on: March 20, 2017, 05:22:07 PM »
Can anyone tell me for certain that the front hood vents on the 74 El Tigre are the same as  75 Suzuki Fury? They appear to be identical, even though the hoods are different from the headlight up. Mine "melted" onto the pipe yesterday on a vintage ride, so looks like the Wicked Witch after Oz got done with her! Jerry's NOS has El  Tigre vents, but don't want to buy it if it's off a touch, & won't work. I have both these sleds, & compared them, but would take any advice.

    "74 tigre is way different, now '75-'77 are close, not sure if they are the same though. '74 was basically a chrome trim ring.

    Not the headlight trim, the plastic hood vents that sit on the flat part below the headlight. I carefully checked mine, appear to be the same. Was hoping someone knew for sure, but heck, I'm just gonna' buy one & hope for the best!!

    Don't know what I was thinking. I forgot the suzi doesn't have that grill over the hood opening that the cats have. was thinking
    it was like a '75-'77 tigger instead of the flat in the center fury.
