I took them out and clean it. please look at the before and after pictures and one picture just showing a the normal one, buy the way the reed it self look nice and if not perfect.

    You could try a wire brush attachment on an angle grinder, it will take the rust off but the pitting will still be there. Its okay it makes no difference to the performance.

    Remove the plates and soak them overnight in carb cleaner. Then hit them with a small clean wire brush they should come up fine for use. You don't want any flaky rusty stuff anywhere near your intake.
