Probably safe, both these mods have been done before. The Vulcan already handles more than well enough (for me) with the stock tire size, so I haven't had a reason to switch. It's not a sportbike, and doesn't have the frame geometry or riding position to be ridden like one. But it is one of the best handling cruisers I have ever ridden. I'd be careful with the Plexifairing III, it has been used many times on the Vulcan,, and I'm assuming it's adjustable. But remember, it is a huge sail, attached to the steering device (handlebars and fork), and will catch a lot of wind. I had a much smaller Harley style windshield on mine, and it was downright dangerous. It would cause a violent shimmy at highway speeds, as well as try to rip your helmet off. I removed it. But it wasn't adjustable, and was almost vertical. The centerline of a windshield should be about the same as the fork angle. Remember, it will feel and handle differently, so you need to get used to that difference before resuming normal riding.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
