Access to rear brake reservoir - shortcut

Several years ago someone (I forget who) had a posting about gaining access to the rear brake reservoirs by loosening the tupperware over the reservoirs without having to take the rear seat out or having to remove the passenger footpeg hardware. What I remember is that some of the tupperware torx screws are removed and the right rear tupperware is dropped slightly and pulled (gently) outward, giving access to the two chambers, which then can be filled with the straw/turkey baster/thin pipette method.

I topped off my '03 reservoirs once doing it that way, but am embarassed to say that I failed to save the thread. I've used the search facility extensively without success. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
