I think you could use one out of a Bullet which is 4" long with a longer spring to keep it in place.  ERC

My apologies ERC,you got it right.I've just bought a 3" spring and new cap and will fit a Bullet filter.I was confused as i didn't realize there was a filter cap (or supposed to be)and a short spring down the far end. My bike was missing that cap so supposedly oil was simply bypassing the filter.
