Reeder, absolutely don't worry about it. It is normal. When I start my '14 from day one that drips right there while it's warming up. As another said it is an opening to let condensation to escape. I've update my stock exhaust to Yoshimura and it still does the same thing. As I said, don't worry about it, it is normal. Especially in NY as I am in NJ.

Reeder, get down a little lower..... then look up. There's an intentional weep hole in the exhaust for that very purpose. You're welcome.

Weep hole! I couldn't remember that name of that term! Ehhh, I'm getting older.

BMW riders are used to that name when it comes to wind whisked minimal oil seepage. HD riders, well, they're just used to it altogether, they don't have a special name for it. LMAO

Burning fuel produces water vapour, and when it hits the cold exhaust during warm-up, it condenses. When the exhaust gets hot at operating temperatures, it will evaporate and be blown out the back end, inside of exhaust should then be dry.... mostly. If there wasn't a weep hole, that nice acidic water would rot your exhaust.... long trips good for you!! Commuting short distances, bad.

Like old Triumph and BSA riders, I thought they called it: "Marking your territory."

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

Once you seal the muffler connecting point then you'll begin seeing moisture from the muffler. Perfectly normal.

Also, when replying to someone specifically like this, "Thank you thanks what I screwed up brilliant!", please use the QUOTE button in that person's post and THEN type your reply. It will show up like this

Sealant is optional as I've spoken to Delevic and they don't use on their bikes.
They include a tube of sealant with their slip-ons, not optional at least on my recent order.
