I noticed this on mine too - I wrapped it in a spiral with "pile" (not hook) sticky backed velcro after washing it with soap and water- still there.

While you're at it pinch the hose with your fingers, if it feels crunchy or stiff replace it along with new stainless clamps - cheap insurance! ;) From my understanding hoses wear out from the inside.

Something else to look for that I found on my '01 is that a screw head on the engine case was chafing on the upper edge of that same lower right hose (the one going into the water pump). It had caused a little dimple in the hose that could have gotten worse over time, so I took a piece of 1" heater hose about 2" long, split it lengthwise and clamped it on so that it would shield the hose from further damage.
