IF the throttle sleeve that comes with your right grip works with the Vulcan 750, you can use it. If not, you will need to remove it from the sleeve (not always possible, some of those grips that come with a throttle sleeve are glued together really good), or get a set of grips without the sleeve. If you get just slip over grips, you will still need to remove and modify the stock throttle sleeve. It has 4 protrusions on it that fit into the stock grip, that won't work with a universal grip. To make the grip fit up against the switch pod right, you will need to cut or grind those off.
I still have the original stock grips on mine, after 72,000 miles, because of how comfortable they are. To me, as a high mileage rider, comfort comes before looks. But I have replaced grips on bikes with that type of throttle sleeve, and I used a Stanley knife with a new blade to slowly trim down the protrusions until they were flush with the grip. Using a grinding tool like a Dremel can cause enough heat to melt the plastic sleeve.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
