left the bike outside during a heavy rain and water probably went inside the exhaust.
Do you believe that this could rise some problems?

Just run it for a bit - it will be fine

Actually surprised there are no "drain" provisions due to the angle of the exhaust. Running it should resolve any water but over time that seems like a bad design.

Just blast it out and bring the motor up to operating temperature. You will be fine and the muffler will survive.

You could shove a small towel inside to soak up most of it, then dry the rest with a hair dryer set on low. Then sing your bike a lullaby and wrap it in a blanket.

Or just ride the thing. Heat will sort it out pretty quickly.

If you leave it outside for long periods of time without starting it perhaps invest in a rubber bung to seal the end.

Can you share what lullaby works for you :)
