I definitely recommend oem mirrors, what ever design you choose. Most oem Mirrors are made by Napoleon. The cheap ones will fall apart. If you only need one, try a salvage yard, or someone here who has replaced their mirrors with something else. I think the "Arlen Ness" style artsy mirrors look weird on a Vulcan 750.
I bought an '04 Rebel 250 a few months ago as a project, and wound up swapping the Rebel mirrors onto the Vulcan, and the Vulcan mirrors onto the Rebel. Both were a perfect fit, and, IMO, made both bikes look better.
You can buy Napoleon mirrors that are not oem, but they cost just as much. If you don't get the same style as you already have on the left side, you will need to buy two.
It's just a personal preference, but I don't put cheap stuff on my Vulcan, or any other nice bike. If it's a beater, it really doesn't matter. Jerry.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
