I had an L not long back, put like 13,000 Baja cruise miles on it, loved it! (and miss it)
I removed all the smog stuff with (as i recall) a kit from IMS. I can't say if it ran differently because I never rode it with that stuff on.
A good source for info on that bike is Thumpertalk.com, in the 650 R/L section.
Don't go overboard on bike mods, it really doesn't need much to be totally fun. I had Precision Concepts do the suspension, and IMS tank, different bar mounts (to get the bars farther forward and higher, and I'm only 5'8"), decent bars, and i monkied with the stock exhaust tip.

You may want to just disable the smog and leave all that crap on your bike because a cop/ranger on a bad day may decide to cite for modifying or eliminating your smog equipment.
