The biggest problem with the stock linkage is that it works it's way loose over time and the lube dries out. There is NO published service interval specifically for the linkage other than to check for proper operation at each service interval. I take mine apart and clean, lube, and check the tightness of the ball joints at every 6K. I have found both ball joints and the bell crank pivot screw loose in the past.
Keep it tight and lubed and you won't have a problem.
