I'm switching from chain wax to chain lube. Chain wax served me well on my GS500. Chain lasted 18,000 and two years. When I took some links apart there was rust inside the links. It looked like some of the o-rings had dried out and failed. I figure that maybe the chain lube will condition the rings and keep them from failing. I don't think that chain wax does anything for the rings.
