The clear coat on carbon fiber can be very sensitive to organic solvents and other chemicals. Odds are it reacted with the solvent, or even the wax itself, when you waxed it. If the damage is only at the surface you might be able to polish it out, but I'd leave bad enough alone and ask Kinesis (not the dealer who's likely not to know and guess) if there's any way to restore the clarity without causing other problems.
