The mu85-90-16 is about 140mm wide so it should juuuuust about fit.
But do be careful, you might have to turn some of the fender or shock mounting bolts around the other way so there is a minimum of protrusion into the area under the fender.

Anything wider than a 140 needs a bit of work, probably a chain drive conversion too. Various kits were available and might still be.
