First you are going to need to find the lighting coil from a 200r model. They use the same cover so it will just bolt in. Unfortunately that item is no longer available from Honda so you are going to have to find a good used one in working order. The next step would be your wiring which can vary if you would like switched power or if you would just like the light to run whenever the bike is on. You can do custom wiring from the harness on the lighting coil or you could try to find the harness from a 200R. I would check on parts availability of each item before tackling this project as the parts are not available new any longer.
