To start off, it’s not recommended to change the standard size of the tyre for your bike. You should stick to the manufacturer’s recommendation. Increasing the size would lead to a decrease in acceleration and also in fuel efficiency while also affecting the dynamic ability of the motorcycle, mostly negatively.

However, if you MUST upsize, purely to add some more visual zing to your ride, then you should not go higher up than 1 size, and you should change both front and rear tyres, maintaining the ratio.

For example, if you are upsizing a 100/90 tyre, you should move to the size 110/80. You shouldn’t go up to 110/80 or it will have really adverse affect on the way your bike performs.

Hope that helps

Apart from up sizing first you need to check whether that tyre size can be installed in the same fork area or not. Increasing the fork width is not recommended.
