I purchased a replacement LED headlight for my 2016 Vegas (fitment specified 2016). Upon inspection the unit fits a diamond shaped housing whereas the 2016 Vegas has a roundish form factor. My bad for not checking carefully. Is there a replacement LED headlight that fits the 2016 Vegas headlight housing?

It has a H4 plug so should work. As CPT PYRO noted, you will likely have to cut off parts of the rubber gasket (three protruding tabs) to fit. I did.
Without a doubt, you'll have to trim the rubber gasket a substantial amount to get it to fit....

Make sure you can still get a new gasket before you trash the one in the bike. The light is acceptable, but it isn't great. I'm still looking for a better option so I don't need auxiliary lights.

Hola, just gonna throw in my thoughts/ 2 cents in........

I bought the JW speaker 7" 8700 for my '05 Vegas. JW Speaker also offers a 5.75. I really like this headlight!! It sucked riding at night with the original headlight even on high beams. Now I get cars flashing back at me when I'm heading towards them.

Installing the 5.75" headlight from vicbaggers, you weren't kidding about shaving the rubber gasket down, where the light slides into the groove on the rubber gasket on the factory light it like 1/4" where as the new light it almost a 1/2". Stop me if i'm doing something wrong but it looks like you really gotta trim out this gasket to make it work.
