Which lights in a 690 MecaSystem fairing

Hi, first post here !

I'm looking to buy a used MecaSystem fairing for my 2012 690 Enduro R.
The fairing does not have the lights in it.
I need help to find "plug-and-play" lights prior to buy it.
I'm open to everything that will be supported by my stator and who is under 5,000$
The thing is that i don't have the fairing at hand, only pictures.

Thanks

A very effective alternative to the HID which is NOT plug and play is to buy the Baja Designs Squadron XL system and fabricate a plate to fit the fairing housing. It's plug and play and offers high and low plus off-road lighting worthy of their namesake. I am doing the same thing with a new Rally Raid set up on order. $350-400 complete. Less than HID.

Thanks for the input !

You mean this thing ?

Not a bad idea.
I have 2 holes for lights in "my" fairing, so i would need 2 of them...$$$$

I already have pretty good lighting with my RIGID Dually LED auxiliary lights.
All i need is cheap road legal (D.O.T) basic High/low beams.


I found something, but not sure that they will fit inside the fairing's bracket AND if my stator can juice them well ?

But please keep in mind that those leds don't offer a road legal low beam pattern, they will blind oncoming traffic. Aiming the leds further down leads to blinding yourself due to too intense light close to the bike. For offroad/full beam I bet they're great though.

About the Hella lights i mentioned in my previous post,
The description says they are H9
H9 = 65W ?

I think that factory bulb on my bike is H4 -- 55/60W
