There's only so many switches on the handlebars of any bike, if you're not finding a switch that works the high beam, have you checked to see that the bulb is good?

How many switches are there on the left grip?
I'm finding pictures that show one or two... If it's two, the right one is on and off, and the left one is low and high. If it's one it's just high & low...

Go into the headlamp shell. Identify the hi beam wire and trace it back. There should be a junction where a wire will lead to a switch

Is this a UK bike? Road legal? or a dirt bike used elsewhere? Presumably you've not had it long otherwise you'd know where the switch was.?

if there's no switches on the other handle bar, have you considered asking the previous owner if there was one?

LOL, not many people know. A uk moped, ie 50cc bike is not legally required to have main beam. My daughters Aprilia did not have main beam, i converted it because the headlight was shite using kx 125 parts. 

So it may well not have main beam.
