The problem with speedo cables that are not used to often is that the 
grease solidifies and contaminates easier. It is better to use graphite 
or molybdenum disulphide powder.
However this should only be used if outer and inner cable are spotlessly 
clean (use white spirits, engine cleaner, brake cleaner etc.) and 
thoroughly dry.
