LV exhaust leaking moisture at Y pipe

Hey guys, I have about 400 miles so far after installing the M4 Y pipe & LV Factory Evo II's.
Every time I start the bike up when it's cold there is always moisture that drips from the clamp where the link pipe is connected to the Y pipe. It does this on both sides. I always have to wipe it up because it makes a mess and it is also hard to get off the Y pipe after it's hot.
I figured after a few heat cycles it would stop, but it hasn't. I'm wondering if this is normal or if there is a problem? I have checked all the connections and the clamps are all tight and there is no air leaking.
After the bike warms up it will stop dripping. The temps I haven been riding in have ranged anywhere from the 40's to the upper 60's.
