When the bike is cold remove the radiator cap and look in the radiator. If you see coolant at the top it's good. If it looks low or you can't see any at all you need to add coolant.

Nothing's wrong with my bike but what should I check to make Sure my bike is safe?

You should check oil and if your bike is liquid cooled check coolant. check chain tension and get a tq wrench and go over axle bolts, brake bolts, tree bolts, drain plug, ect all these specs can be yours from your dealer. also check for any leaks.

Engine is too hot, water circulation n radiator okay.

Check the coolant reservoir tank and fill if needed. Most modern cars have a plastic reservoir of coolant connected to the top of the radiator. This will allow you to see if your coolant is low. Many have marks indicating the proper level of coolant when the engine is hot. Check to see if the coolant is at that level.
Add coolant (or water, in a pinch) to your reservoir to the full/hot line. On most cars, you can add liquid to your reservoir even if the car is hot. Check the owner's manual to be sure, or wait for the car to cool before opening.
If your car only has a radiator and no coolant reservoir, you must wait for it to cool before checking the level of coolant.

Is there coolant in the Volusia and how do you check/change it?

It is liquid cooled & you can check it like a car. On the left or right side there's a cap on the radiator. DO NOT open when hot. Open when cool & the level should be about 1/2" from the top when standing the bike like you're riding it.

Bleeding Air from Cooling System

With the system cold, fill the radiator with a 50/50 antifreeze and water mixture - fill it all the way to the top, then put the cap back on. Now, fill the plastic overflow bottle about 1/2 way with your antifreeze solution.
Ride the bike until normal operating temperature is achieved (or longer, if you like). Now park it and let it cool down again. Then, check the coolant level in the overflow bottle and add more antifreeze, if needed.
When you operated the engine until normal operating temperature was achieved, all air trapped in the cooling system gets pushed out by the expanding coolant (out through the overflow bottle and into the atmosphere). Then, during the subsequent cool-down period, only liquid is drawn back into the radiator from the overflow bottle as the engine coolant cools and contracts, not air. From this point, as long as the radiator cap is not removed - and the overflow bottle is maintained at the 'full' level, no air will enter the system.

Not a problem but I never have owned a liquid cooled motorcycle.. how do you check coolant levels or add coolant. found what appears to be to overflow reserve tank located low behind motor. my question...

Check you owners manual as it should tell you if the tank is under the seat or elsewhere. The manual should also provide specif instructions particular to you bike as to the proper coolant levels and how to add coolant.
