should i apply some more lube?
white lightning is very difficult to apply correctly so it quiets the chain. Follow the directions exactly as suggested on the bottle & this might help. But most likely the innards of your chain are still holding the remnants of what you cleaned it with. If you want a dry wax lube you might check out the Molten Speed Wax page. Melted wax in a crock pot I believe may ensure much better penetration.
