Like the guys have said above, you'll need more than just a lift kit to run 32" tires. Depending on what model of 420 you have (IRS or SRA model) will depend on what you'll need to fit those tires.
If SRA, you'll need to extend the rear sway bar to push the axle back. This will have to be a custom thing built by yourself. Then you still need at least 6" or more suspension lift in the front (I think bigger for 32's). A lift this big requires different a-arms, axles, brake lines, shocks, etc....everything is replaced except for the hubs.
If you have a IRS model, you'll need at least a 6" lift (I suspect you'll need bigger than that for 32's) all the around. If you can find a company who makes one for your bike, it will probably be in the $3000 plus range for this kit. If there is no kit made to bolt on, then you'll need to custom make this lift yourself as well.

Then on top of all this, you still got to do a gear reduction in order to turn those tires. Without it, you'll have a dirt road queen as you'll not have enough power or torque to go anywhere else. Put any strain on it and the bike won't move.....it'll just sit there and burn the clutch.

You're gonna have to do a LOT to a 420 to run those tires.  They will eat your rear end and transmission in short order.
 
Don Oglesby makes stretches and gear reductions, as do a few other guys. 
 
It's gonna cost you $$$$.

Be smart, sell your 32's and buy some 27's. That is the sensible thing to consider. The absolute #1 mistake I see tire buyers doing is buying to much tire for their units.
