    Rusty pump, ride plate and intake. Any tips on cleaning up?

    2002 GP1200R with 19 original hours. I was told it was run in fresh water only, but there is a lot of rust around the back end. It's not the normal rust I'm used to seeing on metal. It almost looks like dried salt or light brown/white fine powder. Some of it just rubs off with my finger.

    Any tips on cleaning it up? I'm thinking of putting a stage 1 kit from Riva on anyway, so I'd be pulling the pump out then.

    Cheers boys!
