most hondas have a translucent tank with markings that are hard to see. Use a flashlight to backlight it and look for the marks. A look from below will help you trace where the filler is, on some it is in front, others behind. Someone with a Spirit will have to point out where the cap is on your bike, I donno.

I have a 2004 spirit 1100 and rad cap is situated under the right side neck cover, which means removal of the gas tank to get the cover off, you can't get at it without removing tank, sorry for bad news but it don't take long.
