You should always check/add the coolant at the radiator,,don't go by the overflow bottle. When you added coolant to the ovorflow bottle and then started the bike that would not have put any coolant into the rad or engine. Running the engine without the coolant may have caused problems as Blue Fox mentioned, or it could also be a bad head gasket on the side that is reading low,,valves would be less likely in my opinion.
