There is no statute of limitations per se. You must prove 5 years of good moral character. Failure to register is generally considered not to be good moral character. The last day you can register is the day before your 26 birthday. Therefore, once you are 31 you should be able to apply.
J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.

It is 31. Good moral character is required for the 5-year period immediately peceding your application for naturalization. If you make a declaration that your failure to register with selective service was not intentional, your appication may still be granted.
