Default Good lights

Hi, I have a 2014 EC300 Racing Nordic Edition and am looking for a good alternative for getting better headlight - I have a helmet light and also would like a better alternative for the one on the bike - stock is quite useless, it gets quite dark here...

Since it's the racing edition I don't have a battery or electric starter, so something that should work with the bike as it is would be great - is it even possible, or do I have to rebuild the electrical system?

Any hints on this?

Thanks in advance,
Mattias

My hint would be the Endurotech lamp from Poland. I have one myself, and am very pleased with it. I think we ride under similar winter conditions, as I live in Norway. I have a 2015 EC200, kickstart only. Please see my report here:

There are lots of LED lamp options available. Go for as high a lumen count as possible and consider mixing a spot light and a flood light to get a good light spread. Also remember that a bright light is no good if the lens is garbage. Generally, you pay for quality but the result is worth it.

If you don't have a battery, does your bike have a power connector for a radiator fan kit? I use this to power my aftermarket lights.

I use these. I have had them for about 8 years now but they are still excellent.
