Return side, yes.
Somewhere on the forum I showed how I fitted an oil filter on my '55 plunger. I am very pleased with the way my oil pipes run; they are quite unobtrusive. There are other options of course.

Never ending story, but why hide it?
I made it with my long stroke rigid (toolbox to narrow) so, that I put the oil filter in front of the engine.
Advantage for me, a cooling effect and a little bit more oil in the system (about 350 ccm in total), also easy to change.
But it is a matter of taste, I must admit.

The toolbox of the Plunger is not deep enough to accomodate the Norton type filter arrangement, but I think you have a swing-arm model which has a larger toolbox, so you could put your filter in there if you don't mind loosing space for tools, sandwiches, can of beer, wank mag etc. There are many photos of this arrangment on the forum.
