An update.
I took my youngest daughter (8) for a cruise around towards Mapua for an ice cream on Sunday & the gearbox & clutch felt very nice. I don't spose the bearings make any difference to the shifting however it was heaps smoother than the old Berlina box. I had replaced the selector roller which may had made a difference .

The new neutral switch actually works however isn't instantaneous as the old one was. Was nice to see a lite tho.
So far there aren't any oil leaks I can see but will check after I go for a longer harder ride.

I found the new rubber boot from motobins was a little looser fit than usual so much easier to install.

I thought about painting or polishing the box however I am a bit like pigpen out of Charlie Brown - I can't seem to keep them clean.
