Fill it with fluid cold. Run it with the cap off till the thermostat opens, between 160-180 degrees. You'll know when it opens because the fluid level will drop. Top off the fluid and install the cap.

And that's why some people don't post much.

Not sure about the inline-4, but on the SV, the service manual says to blip the throttle several times. And you can see the water level drop in the radiator each time more air is forced out of the system.
