I am looking at a 07 Ninja EX250(R) in Canada that was a US bike. From what I remember and from the pictures I took, this bike doesnt have a rear peice that hangs under the tail of the bikes body above the rear tire.
well I live in the US, but I'm sure Canada's laws are similar. The license plate must be lit up at night. Lots of people do an altercation to the brake light to where the bulb shines down on the plate as well. That's probably what the seller of the bike you're looking at has done.
I agree with the plate bolts. I'd rather not use the tail light's window as the only source of light for the plate. Leave no doubt and put some plate bolts or another light which has the sole purpose of lighting up your plate
In the US, the federal law says that the turn signals must be at least nine inches apart. The lenses don't make that. So technically it's illegal, but I haven't ever heard of anyone getting pulled over for it.
I chose not to put the turn signals in those pods when I removed the rear fender on my bike. Instead I put extra brake lights in there. You can find my bike under motorcycle modifications and under the Classic 250 thread.
in the pics of the blue bike (my bike) those are turn signals. The previous owner replaced the stock ones with those. Though he didn't remove the rear fender (bulging plastic part above rear tire on the bike in your first post).
Yeah they're too close. If the turn signals are in those side pods, then they're only about 7 3/4 inches apart from center to center. You should do your best to find the local laws though, it could be different than it is here in the US.
