Rusty F800GS Center-Stand

I decided to go with the OEM center-stand because of the large footprint and the probability that it will be used off-road often--I ordered it from my local BMW dealer and when I began installing it I noticed a decent amount of rust inside of the open tube. It also looks like there might be some rust pushing up under the exterior paint. Has any one else had this issue with the OEM center-stand? I'm not trying to sound like a whiner but shouldn't a $300 part come rust free?
