    That whitish gunk (or oily silver dust) is possibly from a slight SC touchdown.

    Hey stang, I took all my inlet pipes off at 17 hours on my rxp-x to find i had exactly the same problem. I was quite shocked at the amount of white shit in there.. I posted a very similar thread to yours, and discovered others had had this same thing happen. One guys said he cleaned all his pipes up then never noticed the gunk to be there again.. Maybe it is just something that happens while they are new.. Any how, i have not taken my ski out since, but i will clean them up and see how i go (I also purchased a groco water strainer for the i/c, thinking this might be the problem). For now, don't stress it.. Seems to me like a common thing.
    Hope this helps.
