I've been looking at "Street fighter headlights" on eBay or try "Street fighter front fairings" or similar combos. Most are universal and would bolt onto the forks and turn with the forks. You may need to buy a separate mount kit. If you want it to stay facing forward you can make your own mount to the frame using the factory mounting points.
Personally, I modified the stock fairing because the stock fairing mount also holds the speedo and the mirrors. I will change it later but I'm on a budget and a good speedo can be pricey.
Keep in mind, you will have to wire up an aftermarket head and signals, it's not that hard if you can follow a schematic, wiring diagram, or trace wires back.
I am looking for one too for later when I can afford it. I'm leaning towards a removable wind screen for highway use, ever hit a dragonfly doing 50? I thought I got shot!

I started with some modified SV650 fork mounts and made my own brackets to attach the headlight to the fork mount.

I ended up making my own. Spent 15 at home depot.

It's about 6 inches off the forks so I have space for the tach, I'm debating bringing it in tighter, but I'm 6'2" so when I lean in, I don't want to be on top of it.
Got a strip of thin metal for 9 and some bolts, nuts, and washers. Got a 1 1\4 PVC coupling, bent around that, and put a strip of rubber gasket i had around the fork. Not as pretty, but sturdy enough and only took an hour.

I just searched for universal 43mm headlight mount arms on eBay.
