2006 GSX-R600 - Water pump doesn’t come off the engine

I am replacing the water pump of my GSX-R.
I drained the engine oil and the coolant, disconnected the hoses, undid the two 8 mm bolts. But the water pump does not come out. I can feel the pump moving a little bit, when I pull on it, but it doesn’t come out. Part of problem is that is difficult to get a good grab on the pump. Also, I don’t want to damage the pump, because I plan on overhauling it and keep it as a spare.
Any suggestions?

I'm thinking that the O-ring on the pump's nose has somehow stuck/bonded to the crankcase and you're just going to have to keep fooling with it.
