radiator fluid

So I drained the fluid out of my radiator when I took my exhaust off, do I refill it on the radiator or the overflow reservoir under the seat or does it matter? And I also heard something about"burping" the line? Any help would b appreciated, thanks

Btw, its an 05 636

I would fill it from the radiator main, as well as topping off the overflow. There should also be a bleed screw to remove any air from the system. I am not an expert, but a shop manuel would really help you out.

Fill the radiator and the over flow (to the line). Fill the rad. and let the like run. As it's running squeeze the lines (inlet and outlet) and burp the air out with the cap off. When the thermostat opens, the level will drop. Refill the radiator. Let it run with the cap on and watch the temp. You will know the thermostat is opening when the inlet and outlet lines are both good and hot. Make sure the fan kicks on. Kill it. After it cools check the fluid level again.

Ok I thought out might consist of something like that, thanks for the quick and detailed answer.

Get the 50/50 mix too. Don't run straight antifreeze
