No difference in braking performance.
Kevlar is a little lighter but not as crash resistant.
Kevlar is also typically more expensive.
I prefer stainless.

I've got Kevlar on the 929...never had stainless on a bike though. Find someone who's got SS lines and compare their brakes to mine, and see whose you like better...

Kevlar dissipates heat much faster than stainless or any other material. For this reason Kevlar lines will not heat up, which makes your brake fluid closer to it's original viscosity--essentially making your braking force applied even accross all temperatures and frequency of usages.

I doubt, however, than more than 10% of the world could tell the difference, so I'd not recommend spending the extra cash on something you probably wouldn't notice....unless you like the bling, of course.
