Lotus54 just wondered how you are finding this new rear end set up after having a few months to ride with it

It is working well.

  I did have the middle rocker bolt come loose- so I shimmed it and re-locktited it to keep it form loose item again.

 

Easy to lube and seems to be holding up well.  Seems smoother than the factory, but I could be dreaming.

mostly I didn't want to break it again and have to dismantle, lube and replace bushings less often.

For me it has been worth it.

but I broke the stock linkage twice and didn't want to do that again (plus easy lube)

make sure they send a 90° zerk for the middle pin, the straight mine came with is inaccessible when on the bike. They are a thread pitch not avaliable locally for me (I live in a small town).

I'd also recommend shimming and locktiting that middle pin, to make sure it doesn't come loose.
