    The size should be embossed on the rim.

    I'm gonna say the ninja was a much wider rim....anyways I measured or rather did the best possible with a tire still on the rim looks to be 4" not counting the flare of the lips.

    That rim style was used on a couple bike models.

    I feel confident they're the three spokes similar to what my 99 zx6r had. It called for 170 stock but I ran 180 on out always with no trouble

    If your spokes are like 3 slanted knives (fat on one side and sort of sharp on the other),
    then you have stock pre wheels. The 88 600cc had different looking wheels , but still narrow. EDIT: I think they were like 6 spoke.

However, running a 180 on the stock rim is going to pinch the tire for sure. Yeah its only 5mm on each side of the wheel, but when you consider that the tire only has a few millimeters of bead locking the lip to the rim. It only takes one instant to make you wheel chair stricken for life... A big loose tire flexing on a narrow rim as your turning...pop !
    mines a pre....i suspected ol skinny tire but I'll be damned it was 180/55
