    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?

    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:D

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