Default Side stand spring help!

Hoping one of you guys can help or has experience/info on springs, problem is that i thought the spring i had was ideal for my T160 bobber (custom frame) and what looks to be a T160 or T140 kick stand,

But the trouble is that it needs to be 90mm long (ideal) may get away with 100mm at a pinch but i suspect it will be too loose.

The main problem is it has to clear the slim bolt head and edge of the stand, so it needs 40-50mm of clear space before the spring coil starts, or may be like the old Triumph or Harley type that are tapered either end, which may slip over the bolt head and not catch, but i have no idea of the total length of these, so i would really like to find out before i start ordering, and then find its too long/short, any input appreciated.
