Question about 2003 Honda VTX 1300 Retro
I do not quite understand you question. Filling the coolant tank and radiator would appear to be the normal procedure for filling a coolant system. If the engine will now not turn over, one of the following is possible, the battery is not connected or connected properly, A wire has been dislodged in the starting circuit, The battery has run down completely during the time it has been standing. If the engine will not turn over by any means, one or more cylinders has filled up with some fluid and is hydraulically locked.
First remove all the spark plugs and try turn the engine over - look for fluid coming out of the plug holes. If the engine turns over freely, check the battery and all its terminals and cables, and switches that they are making contact. Charge the battery or try another battery. If coolant inadvertently got into the cylinders, you will have to flush the engine with flushing oil and renew the oil.

The bike will not turn over, its related to battery.Get the battery and its voltage checked.If voltage checked out, ok, then check battery to starter connection.May be the battery or starter connection got loose or unplugged while replacing radiator.Also check, if you notice any coolant leak or is the coolant overfilled.But coolant issue will cause other problems like over heating.Smoke from exhaust etc etc types of problem.Still get this possibilities checked.Most probably, any of the wire is got unplugged or loose. Remove the connections, clean and reconnect, then check.-------- This should help.keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.
