Anyone make a small driving light with high/low beam?

I'm making a custom mx style number plate for my Bandit 1200 streetfighter and going to fit a single projector or driving light of some kind. (No, not a fog light. I need something I can actually see with in the dark on the highway.)

Ideally I need something that is self-contained, meaning has the high/low bulb or a high/low/ground hookup on it so I can still use my handlebar switch to go from high to low and back. Needs to be under $100.

Any recommendations?

sanjoh, aka advmonster led lights. happy with mine. you'd need the rotary dimmer switch, but with the adv discount you could probably come in right around 100. no affiliation, just a happy customer.

Do you really want a small headlight? At least in most states, driving lights are only allowed to be on with a high beam headlight. Fog lights are only allowed to be on with a low beam headlight.

We have a small (a bit larger than 2" in diameter) led light that has an adjustable low beam, with a high beam. Plenty of light to navigate or get a light tan

Ended up going with this one


Says it has a High and Low beam. Will have to make an L alum bracket to mount it cleanly.

If that doesn't work something like this might:
http://www.amazon.com/HELLA-Oval-Dou...rds=Hella+dual

With that you'd have a lot of options but none of them would include switchable/hi-lo bulbs (a la H4). That being said you could replace one bulb with a higher wattage or HID bulb and connect that to high beam and/or wire the bulbs so high beam also keeps the low beam bulb lit.
