Ok, need to bleed my Tech X2's and really do not want to buy the bleed kit with lots of stuff I don't need.
Will any DOT 5.1 fluid work, or do I need the Hope brand?
If only the Hope brand will work can it be found without all of the other stuff in the kit?

You definitely do not need the bleed kit to bleed your brakes. I bought it, looked at it, looked at the instructions, was like "wtf?!?" and then bled them with a rubber tube emptying waste into a mug and poured fluid into the reservoir straight from the bottle. I think any DOT 5.1 will work.
