How Large Front Wheel Diameter

I have a RE Mutant running '98 Buell forks. What is the largest diameter front wheel I can fit on those forks? Is the only "size limit" the bottom of the triple clamp? I don't like the 17' stock Buell wheels and want to step up to a 19 or 21" wheel, but I want to keep my Buell forks (I think the pro-stock/sport bike looking forks look great).

How much room between the bottom of the triple clamp and the top of the tire is a safe amount for wheel travel? Frankly, looks like a 21" would mount/fit, but that would not leave any room for wheel travel.

(I might just phone up RE...figure they'd know.)
Thanks for the input,

You need at least 2-3" of travel. You can see on the tubes about how much the front end travels at least on my bike I can. It should give you a very accurate estimation of how much space you need to maintain.
