If you are really wanting a "flush" just change the diff fluid really often.

Change it, drive it 500 miles, change it, drive it again 500 miles, Change it, repeat the cycle until you are happy with the result.

This will not be super cheap though. Any idea how since the last change was done?

Not sure what you mean by "Honda rear end oil" as some dealers are unaware of the type of differential the S2000 has. After a warm up, a good drain should do it after an hour or two of letting it sit.

I don't think Honda has gear lube for the S anymore. If its the 75/85 I'd get it out of there fast. A lot on here go with 75/110 or 75/140 gear lube. Honda does make a 90w for outboard motors, don't think I'd use the either.
Do a search and you will find a lot on gear lube

You can't go wrong with this one. It is about $16. One of the well known S2000 mechanics, a moderator on this site, has stated his confidence in this particular diff lubricant.
