Need a little help on my newst bike please

I had purchased a pre-owned GSXR600 '06 with 1200 miles on it. The radiator was leaking, I got that soldered and re-installed. It runs about 185-190degress, and fan kicks on about 220 which is about right. But when I stop, kill it, coolant fills the overflow tank and makes a mess, and it gurgles.
I purged the system the only way I knew how and that was at the radiator.
Would any of you know how to get all the air out of the system? Please!

That's the only way I ever did it. just open the radiator cap and run the motor. The air comes out and then i add more liquid as needed.
I hate to ask stupid sounding questions but are you sure the thermostat is opening when you purge it? That's all I got, anyone else?

I think it should work itself out. The fan is doing the rigth thing and it doesnt sound like its overheating. No biggie

I let it run with the cap off for quite a while before, adding, subtracting coolant before putting all the farings on (not too bad, but time consuming). I assume that I've run it long enough to purge, at one time it really gushed out and I had to shut the motor off and let it settle. Then I started it up again and did the whole process again until it seemed like the coolant was plenty hot, and the temp was up and then installed the cap, and adjusted the coolant level in the overflow tank accordingly. What else could I do?

If it were the thermostat, granted that it has one, it's not necessarily acting like a bad thermostat? except for the gush that it did, but that calmed down. Plus the temp as it was running was pretty much stablized.

did that bike used to be a racebike? cuz ive had that problem on my 750 and the cause of it was the thermostat. the person i got the motor from had jammed the thermostat open so it would stay open. so the bike would get hotter and hotter until it would over heat

run the motor with the radiator cap off until the fan kicks in then add coolant until full. You might want to squeeze some of the hose where the air might trapped to let the air out.
