Best fill point to add water?

The filler under the seat is for the reservoir, so can you add there and bring the bike up to operating temp or should you use another fill point?

How do you burp out any air pockets?

I add coolant at the fill point under the fuel tank. I also top up the coolant overflow bottle to the fill line. Then to remove air from the system the bike is started, left to idle for 3 mins then I snap the throttle a few times. Top up as required.

+1 Only way to really fill the system completely is to fill via the cap under the tank.
