They are too long to just drop into the headlight housing on the 08+ Ninja 250R.

Bad news is that these projectors will not fit into the 250R headlight.

Good news, we are working on a projector setup for the 250R. I don't have an ETA on this project as it has already been quite some time, however we are closer to an actual product than we were when we first started playing with the above projectors

On a side note, if you're going to test the headlight yourself and install other projectors, be careful in taking the headlight apart, also good luck. The headlight is sealed using silicone, unlike other headlights that are sealed using tar like plastic glue.

I've taken apart headlight housings before (anodized part of the relfector in my Stratus Coupe show car), but I remember putting them in the oven to warm them up and get the glue to release the halves, so they could be disassembled. Are you saying the 250R has RTV (room-temperature vulcanizing) adhesive, rather than a thermal?

I'm considering a similar project on my own '09, and am interested to know what process works on getting the housings apart and back together.

Yes, I put them in my 08 250R. I had to modify the reflector to get them to clear the lens cover.

Yes, the headlight uses RTV, as opposed to thermal. Best way is to first go around the entire headlight with a sharp knife, followed by pry tools. During the entire process, be careful as to not cut yourself by slipping the knife and take it slow since pry tools tend to bend plastic.

I already have the projectors but I didnt know it would not clear the lens cover. How did you modify the reflector? I need to clear like an Inch for it to clear.
