ABS Brake Fluid Change & Bleed

Is there anything special compared to the C10 that you need to do to change brake fluid in ABS and linked systems? If you just put a vacuum on the bleeder at the caliper and add fluid at the resevoir will it change the fluid and not damage anything?    Dave  A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what it was built for.

Dave, I would think bleeding the system would be the same unless it has a separate tank for the ABS unit but it's unlikely. Bleed and flush with a vac bleeder should be fine but I would check the service manual before you dive in.   CT AAD  COG #7011-A  2003 Concours-Mary Ann  1995 Honda Nighthawk 750 wifes

Dave  Fred H's video has a good section on the bleed and other C14 tasks.But   you described it about right

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.
