coolant/radiator question

I feel like such a doof but Im trying find out how do I get coolant back into the radiator, No cap. I know where the resevior is, under seat but I want to get coolant into the rad. Alot of it dumped out when doing the 900rr conv. I removed it because it was in the way. I added some coolant to the resv tank but I dont think any is going thru the radiator. I took it for a short ride and it almost overheated. The fan is working. I appreciate the help

I have been using the Honda Type 2 Premixed from the local Honda Car Dealership and have been very satisfied.
