    Most all motorcycle mufflers have a "drain hole" near the lowest part of the muffler/pipes.
    Some are more noticeable than others.

    Probably stock and perfectly normal. Usually there are some signs of rust or carbon around it.
    Don't believe everything that you think.

    Well actually the moisture occurs when the engine is warming up and the pipes are still cold.
    The rich starting mixture releases more water vapor than normal and it condenses inside the cold pipes.
    Once the engine and pipes heat up, it all goes out the exhaust.
    Don't believe everything that you think.
