oil filter size

ok, went and got the delo, they didn't have the filter I wanted but.....my question is..there is a 2.5 or a 3.25 long filter, can I use either one with the longer one being better cause these more there to allow filtering?

I use the NAPA Gold 1356 which is the longer filter.
This is what I do

According to my lookup, your bike takes a cartridge canister type filter, one of which is the WIX 24940 which is 2.2" in height. Does your filter housing allow for a taller filter?
