That's just one step up from stock so I would expect that it would work, but it will effect your speedometer accuracy b/c the circumference will be larger.(since the stock setup runs below indicated speed this might get you closer to right on (or it may go over)).

Are you sure about the speedo part , I was pretty sure that was from the front wheel which is the 110/70/17 that will stay stock size?

It will fit. There is a 130/80 on mine right now. You can even squeeze a 140/80 on there, but it's mighty tight.
1st or 2nd gen ?
