It is probably possible to do it without a kit but it may be messy and results may vary. I understand your point as $60 seems a bit excessive. If you are going to have your bike for a while I recommend investing the $19 for a bleed kit so you have the tools to do the job conveniently whenever you need to.

Here are some links to guid you through the procedure:
