07 zx6r water pump rebuild

Hello , so I have an oil leak behind the water pump housing, I know there's a gasket but I decide just to rebuild the whole water pump, but in the service Manual it says apply grease on the new o-ring. But what kind of grease? I have water proof grease by belray but I'm not sure if that's the right grease. Thanks

It sounds like that grease would work. I usually use marine grease on the bike.

Thank you I checked out the marine and the belray is not a silicone grease and it didn't say it was safe on rubber gaskets unlike the marine grease.

Find out what is recommended in the shop manual, and use that. If the specific procedure doesn't call out something unique, it'll be listed in the general requirements at the beginning of the manual....

"Basic stuff fellas. Use your head for something other than to break your next fall."

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

Grease for the bearing should be different from the housing sealant, I should think...

Ask riverszzr. He has many years of experience with motorcycle repair...... I'd trust his work far more than a dealership.

The grease is probably just used to help it seat without tearing. Just use whatever.

Sealant is different than grease. If it is actually a sealant you need, then look at Yamabond (Kawabond is stupid expensive). Yamabond is the same stuff, but it's around $10 a tube instead of $80.
