Eek Integral ABS II brake flush

I'm working through a 36k service on my 2008 R 1200 GS. I've done all the service to the bike at each interval since it was new. This is the first time I'm touching the brakes. The ABS control module looks a lot different from the one in JVB's video and in the few YouTube videos I've seen.

What's different about flushing this control module?

Nothing. Bleed until you get fresh fluid at your collection point.

The old fluid trapped in the valves during the flush will be massively diluted by the fresh you've introduced.

2008 bike, then bleed your brakes normally from the brake calipers.

It's only the pre 2007 models that need the servo bled as a seperate item..
