You should not let the temp reach 257 bro that is way too high and dangerous
it seems to me you got some serious issues if you cannot get your hands on a shop
manual take the bike to the dealership

The fan normally turns on when the temp gets around 220 F or so
adding more antifreeze above the correct level will simply lead to a spill
which is what happened

Has the bike been in an accident or dropped that led to Radiator , fan
damage or anything of that nature ?

If the thermostat is not working properly and reading the temperature
correctly how is the fan suppose to know its time to spin and cool down
the Radiator fluid wont happen so that has to be the first part tested

Any visible damage to the radiator fins , hoses , metal tubing connecting
the hoses ?

Take a look at this LINK & picture

either the fan has been broken or the relay that controls it is broken. oddly enough, both of them are on the left side of the bike.

check it out. Relay is on the left side air duct, second of three relays, fan is... well that's obvious.

Like KS said & if you are confused by left side air duct
He means under the left side ram air cover ( panel attched to the gas tank )
lift that up you will see 3 relays (connecters) part # 9 in this image

Checking Relays:

Connect 12v power to the + and - terminals of the Relay
using a multimeter, check for continuity between the other two terminals
if there is no continuity, the relay is faulty

Checking the Fan:

Apply 12VDC power to the fan connection. if the fan does not spin, it is faulty

Checking the Thermostat:

Remove the thermostat from the housing.
using a thermometer rated for temperatures higher than 100C, suspend the thermostat in a container of water and begin heating the water with an electric heating element. At 80-84C the thermostat should begin to open. at 90C, the valve lift should be 8mm or more.
