    edit: pardon for duplication, ibbo; I was typing at the same time as you.

    Which brakes? This guide covers Hope and some early Shimano brakes, neither of which require a bleed kit. Instructions for bleeding generally be found at the website of the manufacturer, and there are also numerous videos on YouTube. Just be brand specific when you enter search terms.

    I just googled "how to bleed XTR brakes" to find out how to do mine.
    Turns out it was pretty easy. Add a piece of tube to the bleed nipple, open the reservoir, open the nipple, then just pump the brakes while keeping the reservoir topped off. I just went through 4 reservoirs after I saw the last air bubble, and it turned out excellent, if I don't say so myself.
