Again I don't recommend chopping up the stock system, it puts you in unknown territory, and may not be tunable throughout the usable rpm range. IMO a complete aftermarket exhaust is the only way to go. I had to rejet for one, but it ran fine. Only problem I had with it was the noise on the highway, but it was so bad I finally went back to the complete stock system. I sold a nearly brand new V&H Cruzers system for under $200. I'd look on eBay and Craigslist for a used aftermarket system designed for the Vulcan 750.
Unlike some cruisers with a 5000 rpm redline, the Vulcan 750 has a highly tuned engine that does not like to be messed with. It is more like a sportbike engine than a typical cruiser. I don't see anyone putting Harley mufflers on their sportbikes.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
