Flushing ABS Brakes / Stopping Fluid Boil

I routinely find myself boiling brake fluid, I did this on my 950 and now my 990. I really need pump some fresh fluid through the system as it happened often enough the fluid is well past it. So it flushing the ABS brakes the same as doing non ABS ones? (ie keeping adding fluid to the master cylinder while pumping it through the slave).

So on to my other question, I tend to trail brake a lot, especially when riding off road and can boil the brakes pretty quickly if I am not careful. I doubt that I am the only one who experiences this. So have other come up with a solution to stop this from happening?
