I doubt it and I also doubt anyone would know that. Park your bike next to one and measure carefully.

It won't fool anyone you know.

I suppose you could make a different one fit. But they aren't cheap. Oh no. Crashing a relatively new sportbike is likely to "total" it even if only the plastic is damaged. Mucho dinero.

I don't know about the compatibility, but why not look at the plastic on an '08 250R. That is assuming you are just looking for an updated look.

Won't be cheap. Might as well just get a new 250R for a newer look.

I though the '07 Model-Year Ninja 250 was the Obama? (change)

Nope, '07 was the last year of the old (very old) style.

We'll call it the Bush Sr. design since it originated in '88.

Buy a used HotBody Yam tail section you want and try. Subframes have one thing in common. They're all triangles. You may have to improv the bolts but you won't know until you try. If it doesn't work put it on Craigs.

It will probly look wrong due to the fact that the ex is so much smaller. With customizing anything is possiable just depends how much time, money , and effort you want to put into it. By that time it may not be worth it
