if its non variated, and has spree forks and motor, I've put a perelli 275-10 with stock under body plastics. that about it. if you want to custom mount the coil, air cleaner, and other electrics, you can squeeze a 3.0-10.
if its variated and has the funky external dual shock fork, you can get a 3.0-10 if you strip all of its underbody/ splash guards, you can get a 90/90-10, ive heard people do a 3.50, but ive never personally seen it. the 90/90 is pretty tight side to side and close to the cylinder cooling cover.

Greetings:

The 90/90 will also foul the centerstand unless the stand is modified or removed in favor of a side-stand. I had a 3.50 on the front that wore the rubber off the brake cable as the taller tire made contact at full suspension compression. The 90 is actually a little wider than the 3.50, but not as tall.

on my 86 aero I didn't have any issues with the centerstand. I have an 87 elite also. ill have to see what the differences between the 2 center stands are.
