This is not a PX, but it gives you an impression on how wide you can go:
SIP sells you the kit you need to do it. It is basically a spacer that moves your rear tyre to the left. To have the front and rear wheel aligned properly afterwards, you need to cut a part of the engine on the right side where it bolts to the frame and add a spacer on the left side. This way the front and rear will be on line again.
The widest you can go without a wide tyre kit is 100mm. Not all 100/90-10 will fit without rubbing though, so it depends a little on the brand.

Just my 2¢ anyway.
