Baja light kit VS homemade????

Can anyone help?.......Need to put lights on a DRZ. Don't want to spend 500 for a light kit, is there any reason why you can't buy the pieces individually and wire it all up yourself........and save some cabbage?? Seems that you could come right off the battery for 12v and go from there. I am quite sure someone out there has done this already. Would like some helpful advise or perhaps some sources to procure what's needed. Thanks for all your time!

If you need a hi/lo headlight, a brake light, horn and turn signals on an enduro then the handlebar combination switch and brake light switches in a dual sport kit are nice. I just finished making my EXC525 fully street legal using the stock headlight and tail light with a Baja Designs combination handlebar switch and signals, KTM brake light switches and my own wiring. There isn't much to the wiring. So, yes, it is doable.

But, for a DRZ couldn't you just buy the factory parts or scour eBay for used factory parts?
