You use policy routing to determine which gateway to use based on a firewall rule.  That's the easy part.  The hard part is coming up with a master list of IPs/networks used exclusively by Windows Update.

Probably "easier" to have a local WSUS and shape all of its outgoing traffic and forward to WAN2.
