Grease for Centerstand Install

Kind of a simple question but what type of grease is recommended for installing the Suzuki centerstand? The instructions call for Suzuki Super Grease. What is an equivelant easily found and can be used on other parts in the future?

I used generic white lithium grease when I installed my Motech centerstand. Comes in a toothpaste-like tube, you should be able to find it at any hardware store. Very common and good to have around.

I used a marine all purpose grease. Same stuff I use on suspension components and wheel bearings on all my bikes.

Let's go!

Bearing grease, used for suspension parts and bearings of course. Get a small tub at the nearest hardware store, costs little and it'll last you ages.

A little dollop will do ya !!!

Thanks all. It's interesting that the three responses represent the three choices on the shelf at the hardware store. I did find a tub of auto bearing grease. So that looks like it will do just fine. Of course now that I broke open the parts bag to the center stand kit I'm missing two plates. :x
Thanks again for the input. It definitely helped.

Well, the lubrication requirements of the centerstand really aren't too critical. Any one of the three would work.

Good. I wasn't sure where to begin or what is best. Also had some white lithium grease from other projects so I should be set for a while.
