What is the easiest way to get at and lubricate the speedometer cable? Mine has been making some noise and jumping around a bit. Can you get at it through the headlight, or does the fairing have to be removed?

Yup, have a look at How to remove and replace your speedometer cable - it gives step-by-step instructions.

What I would suggest is to remove the top end, and spray graphite lubricant into it until it starts to drip out the bottom. Then reinstall.

The graphite lubricant has a highly volatile carrier that evaporates very quickly, leaving behind a dry graphite layer that is extremely slippery.
