hmmm its possible, ive heard ppl have done it to cbr250rr and some 600's. But i cant rememer what the fender looks like again on a ninja 250r.

The main is linking all the indicators and lights properly after you have removed the fender, you need to be able to mount the lights/indicators somewhere clear enough so people behind you are able to see it.

i did it on my bike
what you do is go to bunnings, buy a bracket ($5) and some screws and then thats it
i removed all my indicators and installed an integrated rear brake light and turn signal, attached the bracket to the bottom of my exhaust (the exhaust is under the tail and held up by a support brace that goes around the exhaust)

you've gota have a look at your own bike and see whats attachable rather then a universal fit for all bikes....see what mounting points you've got and be creative

just saw the picture above...very easy to do
find a piece of metal, drill holes, attach 90degree brackets on either side to hold the lights, buy the lights, they screw straight into your brackets after you drill the holes...wire it all up...done
lights are $30 i think from mca....
oh and for the rear numberplate light mca sells these screw in lights that you can attach onto the bottom of your numberplate....wire it up to your ogirinal rear light and thats it

as promised, you can see the numberplate light attached to the top holes in the numberplate
you can also just attach your blinkers then to the bottom holes in the plate or vise versa
