Bleeding ALB System

I have 1988 Acura Legend w/ the dual brake reservoir Honda ALB system. This is the Honda version of the ABS and I believed it's the 1st generation ALB system. Can someone tell me how can I flush out all the old brake fluid and in w/ the new? The Honda ALB system is simply too strange for me. I am more familar w/ the Bosch ABS. THANKS

is there a reason for the flush? because adding new brake fluid can wear out the seals on your master cylinder and abs faster

The "cheap and dirty" way is to use a turkey baster to remove as much fluid as you can from the ABS brake fluid reservoir, refill with fresh fluid, and cycle the ABS on a dirt or wet road. Repeat several times. Doing this essentially dilutes the fluid you have with new, and doing it enough times will eventually replace it all, or at least most of it.

These instructions are for an NSX, but the NSX system is similar (if not identical) to the Legend.
