You'll probably need to remove the cap, fill the radiator, and burp it to get the air out.

Remove your cap, add coolant, start bike and let it warm up blipping the throttle a bit, top off coolant in radiator as needed as it warms and expels air, reinstall cap and after it cools top off reservoir to the full cold line and you should be good to go. If you don't have a service manual, you need to get one. They're readily available and the most important tool you can own for you're bike.

Got to love that radiator, keeps the bike cool but when you need it the most there is always a coolant leak.
