From my limited experience, I'd take the list of oversizes and the cylinder to the machine shop and let them decide. They may want the piston before they bore it, and will need to know the piston-to-wall clearance, which should be in the FSM or available from the piston manufacturer.
I got my gauge lights from Superbright, but it looks like Sparck has them now- I might try them first. You want white 6v BA9s. You can't tell they're LED, so they don't clash with the character of the vintage bike at all. They're just 10x brighter.

Since that part was missing, I went through the rest of the transmission to verify it's all in order. Everything else looks great.
It's weird. From the condition of the heads of the fasteners on the slinger, oil pump, etc., I would have bet money I was the first one inside the...
