Default Re: Water Dust in Stem?

My 22" sahara did the same thing; mostly in the heart and hose ports and I have soft water. You could wash it away but as soon as the water was dried it would be back.

The only conclusion I could make was that sahara uses some wack-ass cheap chinese alloy for the stem and its some weird form of corrosion, because it did seem to form more where there were spots on the stem that were obviously corroding and the finish was flaking off.
