Sufficient fluid in the reservoir does not necessarliy mean that the radiator is full. If you have fixed the radiator leak, let the engine cool down and the radiator will draw coolant in from the reservoir until it (the radiator) is full. Make sure the reservoir does not go dry while this is happening - and do not remove the radiator cap until after everything cools off completely.
There's no check valve in the cooling system, although the radiator cap does serve such a purpose when there's a reservoir attached.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Honda
IF YOU CANT GET A LEAKDOWN TEST DONE ,NEED TO SEE IF THERE IS A SMALL HOLE BY WERE IT APPEARS TO BE COMMING FROM.IF SO ,SOUNDS LIKE A MECHANICAL SEAL FAILURE ,ALSO SOMETIMES IT IS AS SIMPLE AS A LOOSE HOSE CLAMP AND YOU DONT NOTICE IT BECAUSE IT TAKES PRESSURE FOR IT TO BUILD UP OR HEAT FOR IT TO GET SOFT,IN TERMS OF RADIATOR HOSE ,SOMETIMES IT CAN EVEN BE A PIN HOLE OR SLICE IN THE HOSE,BEST THING IS TO CLEAN THE BIKE AND TRY TO LET IDLE TILL FAN COMES ON AND WATCH,CHEAPEST ANYWAYS
