It is like a car, you add to the overflow tank which is located under the tank or shelter( lift out your tool tray and you should see it), all the up front close to the forks.

Have a look at How to flush your cooling system, you'll see several pictures of both the radiator and the coolant reservoir. The radiator cap isn't really accessible without first taking the false tank off.
