Don't feel bad, Honda has hidden everything from you! LOL!

The overflow tank fill is on the right side of the bike above the passenger peg, but you'll need a long skinny hose to reach the coolant. The radiator cap is also on the right side of the bike, hidden under the neck cover. To remove the radiator cap, you'll have to remove the seats and the fuel tank. I'd try to find a long skinny hose! I'm assuming of course, that you're wanting to check the coolant with a hydrometer. There is an overflow tube attached to the reserve tank, it may be capped and hanging below the frame in front of the rear tire. You may be able to drain some coolant from this tube, I'm not sure, I haven't tried.

You can go to: and after registering(it's free) go to their parts fiche and look up an exploded view of your bike's coolant system.

Good luck and let us know how you get to the coolant.
