the first and last ones listed are the same part number in the description.. so they are the same muffler, I personally like the looks of the second one.. never heard either on our bike so wouldn't know sound quality.

These are what I installed last Tuesday...

I gave $45 shipped for them. Nice quiet mufflers for the 750.

Same muffs I run on mine CW, but I drilled a 3/8" hole in the left baffle to equalize pressure better. Most used Sporty muffs have had the baffles removed. I dug around until I found a set with em...sounds like a louder BMW now, lol.

And Tofer, more than likely the first and last "ears" will mount up to the existing hanger holes (I made 2 short hanger extentions for mine to make em level). You can see it in the enclosed pic. Other side a hair shorter.

im looking for louder than stock but cheaper than 300 v&h or cobras as i think putting that much money in pipes for my bike is not cost effective

Remove the goats belly. Louder than stock and cheaper than any aftermarket system. Look for bypass kit at Scootworks.

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.

X2 on removing the goats belly, sounds a lot better than stock and you could always put it back if you don't like it. I feel no power loss and you won't need to rejet it.
