I just swapped out my chain and sprockets about a month ago. My bike (12 WR450) has about 350-400 hours and this is my 1st chain and sprocket change. the stock stuff held up great (No chain lube - just WD40 on chain) and the stock chain/sprockets probably had a few more months before it really needed replacing.
I just put this stuff on, hope it holds up:
Primary Drive 520 ORH Gold X-Ring Chain 520x114
Supersprox Rear Aluminum Sprocket 50 Tooth
Supersprox Front Sprocket 13 Tooth
Supersprox Sprocket Bolt and Nut Kit

I wish I was getting this kind of mileage. I'm maybe 40 hours into this cycle and the front and rear both need replacement.
I hose off the cycle after every ride, and I clean and lube the chain pretty regularly. So, I dunno. It must be the deep sand what got me.

I haven't had my WR long but I use the Dupont chain saver. Goes on wet and dries in about 30 minutes. I add this to a clean chain of course.
I think it's probably more of a protectant than lube. But I changed my street bike chain/sprockets at 40K using it and there was still life in the hardware. That's quite a bit of miles, most with my bike probably change around 30K.
