Use an adjustable reamer, not a fixed reamer, so you can get the right fit. The nominal bushing IDs are in fractions of an inch.

i know the factory service manual calls for a light push for correct fit,zero clearance on an inaccurate ream fit.why not have them honed for a more accurate, truer,fit? just my two cents worth.

The pin fit is only half the job. The other part is making sure that the new bushing holds the pin parallel with the big end. Even honing the bushing does not insure that the bushing is finished to size and square.

If the piston is cocked side to side, oil control can be an issue, and it puts undue stress on the rod and rod bearing.

I had to replace a small end bush on my 3TA and just followed the manual, not knowing that it was better to have them line bored when stripped. Anyway, I took the whole bottom end down to the garage and explained what had to be done. You have to line ream them using the other small end as a guide. It was ok and the bike ran fine. I checked the pistons after a fair bit of running and they were fine. Was only a 3TA though. As a teen I wouldn't have relished stripping the whole bottom end for one small end bush! Line boring is a safer bet.
