I have been using the 120 size for my last few tires on my WR426 and I prefer it over the stock 110, and don't worry there is plenty of clearance. So far I have been happy with the 120/90x18 952 and would recommend it.

FWIW, I didn't like going bigger than the stock size. The tire would rub on the inside of my FMF Q pipe and also hit the chain (properly tensioned), tearing off chunks. I went up one size from 120/90-18 to 130/80-18 (they size differently, so 120/90 = 110/100 = stock) using Michelin S-12s and I much prefer sticking with the stock size. I think the bike actually turns better with the stock size. Admittedly, I also had the suspension done for the 2nd time n (different shop too) when going back to stock size, so that may be the bigger factor for turning.
