Yes. Look at whether the rod the fork rides on is straight, and whether it moves freely in the cases without binding. Also inspect the cam groove for uneven wear, and see to it that the third gear pinion moves freely on the main shaft.

I noticed that the small bearing on end of drive shaft is rough also the small bearing on the end of the main shaft could this cause the hard shifting? also seems like there is a tiny bit of play on the shift fork where it is attached to the rod

It could, but it should get worse as the speed increases, and it should affect all 4 gears. Replace them in any case.
