I have used the Maxima chain wax for years, I ride a lot of sand and it seems to attract less contaminants than the other lubes I have used.
I have never kinked a chain while using it, either!
I am using a Polisport chain guide on my swingarm, but I just put it on and have not ran the bike since I got it. It was cheap, but had good reviews and claims to hold up longer than an OE guide, which has been on the bike a long time!

We'll see how that chain wax works!

Wash the bike, clean the chain lightly (no direct contact with the actual rollers, just the plates)
Put the bike on a stand, start it, put it in gear, and coat the INSIDE of the chain with a water displacer (like WD-40) at the countershaft area
Use a rag to catch the fling-off (be careful, do it at the rear sprocket)
Then lightly coat with chain wax, on the INSIDE of the chain.
Do not bother lubing/waxing the inside of the chain, it will not stay.
Been doing it like this for 7 years, and my VT-2 chains last 100+ hours.
