Default Coolant fill location on Honda CBR 1000?

I have a 1988 CBR 1000 that is overheating. I want to check the coolant level but can't find the radiator cap or overflow reservoir.This stuff is easy on a car - it's all in plain view. I'm sure I can find it if I take off all the panels and start digging around but I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me precisely where to look.Thanks!

HEy Jim, I'd imagine you have it figured by now, but just in case, on my 93 Hurricane, the radiater cap is on the right hand side as you are sitting on the bike. It can be reached by removing the small panel under the RH handlebar. The resevoir is is at the back right side. removing the small panel under the seat.

remember as a general rule on a motorcycle never remove the radiator cap first always simply fill it from the overflow reservoir
