my personal suggestion, if you want a VERY in depth explanation of what you're doing, buy a good repair manual for your specific bike. I have one for mine, even if you're just doing routine maintainence, a repair manual helps you understand what you're doing very well.
but on your water pump, there is usually a little bolt that seems to hold nothing in place, remove it but put a bucket underneath it first because that's your drain plug.
on brake flushing, I usually proceed just like I'm bleeding the brakes, except I just keep bleeding out fluid and adding fresh stuff in as I go until its totally clean. hopefully this helps some.
