front axle lubrication?

Removed the wheels on my K1200S to have the tires replaced ...BMW CD RepROM says to lubricate the front axle with BMW Optimoly high temp assembly paste before replacing the wheel.

Any recommendations for a good substitute? ...something of good quality I can pick up in a local auto parts or motorcycle shop?

A light coating of any high temp grease should do the trick...
