I need a wiring diagram of speedo and tach etc as I'm replacing gauges also I repaired lower radiator hose yesterday and the coolant would not all fit back in. About a quart. I let bike run hoping a valve would open and take more fluid. Is there a possible air lock? Quick opinions please

the service manual says to fill the bike with coolant then start the bike with the t-stat cap off and let it warm up. after the coolant gets circulating it states to blip the throttle several times to "burp" the air out of the system. My Honda I traded in for my M109R was the same setup but on my Kawasaki I still have they have a bleed nipple that looks like a brake bleeder bolt on the t-stat housing. with this all you do is loosen the bleeder and pour in the coolant. it purges the air as it fills and when it reaches the top it will shoot a drop or two out of the bleeder and you tighten it back down and your done.
