advice for 2 questions

First, I just got my new speedo cable and I was wondering if I need take the inside out and grease it befopre I install it. Second, lately I have been having some problems with my ignition switch and I wanted to see if anyone had seen this. Sometimes, when I turn on the switch then press the start button, nothing happens. It's like the kill switch is off. The neutral and oil lights are lit as normal but nothing happens. This mainly happens in the evening when I leave work for home. I can turn the switch off and on several times and it will finally turn over. Any ideas?

Yes lube the cable. As for the ignition it sounds like moisture has gotten into the switch. You can try keeping it covered or you can carefully dis assemble the switch. Clean the contacts and lube with dielectric grease.
