Water line corrosion?

Recommended Posts

So I took my bike for a spin and got caught out in the rain. It was under cover for a few days and when I took it out to clean it, there was white corrosion on the black pipes leading from the water pump area.
 
This seems unusual for a brand new bike. Most of it wiped off where I could reach it with a bit of soap and a rag, but I'm worried how it will weather in a year or so.
 
Has anyone noticed this on their bikes? How did you remedy or prevent it?

Mine is ok but I have heard of a few that soon corroded, I believe
that the pipes are chromed under the paint.
Only corrosion on mine is in a totally different area just a bit were the mirror head fits the stem
I was quit surprised when I found it as though I ride in the rain I do look after it.

Mine is corroded. Almost looks like aluminum corrosion, a white powdery substance that is difficult to remove. I have a lot of miles though and ride 365.


Everything went braap.
