To check and top-up the tilt-lock reservoir on your MP3 250 do the following:

(1) carefully prise off Piaggio Badge on the front
(2) remove one screw in the hole that holds the badge
(3) pull off Vee shaped plastic collar - only held with rubber plugs
(4) remove six bolts holding the windscreen - lift off windscreen
(5) unscrew five screws holding the black plastic shroud- lift off shroud
(6) make a cup of tea

Number of screws/bolts: 12. Time elapsed: 5 minutes!

Afterwards: clean back of windscreen, clean out map pocket, fill reservoir, or, as Mr. klaborde correctly suggests, if the fluid is dirty it should be flushed out, and put it all together again. Happy Riding!

Top Off is one thing...

Typically what needs to be done is to Flush with Clean Fluid every 2 Years as it absorbs water. If your Fluid is Dark, I would not just add Clean Fluid to that.
