Clutch cable: to lube or not to lube?

Just had a seized cable as a result of corrosion. Only 6 months on the bike.

It could have been a sea crossing where the whole bike was liberally doused by the waves, or standing in the rain, or it could have been slightly corroded from delivery, as the clutch and shift action after replacement is much better than it's ever been.

I have a lube tool, another question is whether to use the supplied cable lube or a really good corrosion inhibitor I have (ACF-50).

No WD40 thanks, I've proved that the ACF-50 works a lot better already.
