I just got my XR's Only muffler and the block off kit and it makes a real huge difference, very powerful the bike now. I can see that you still have the emission junk on your bike.
Yeh, I'm in CA, so I'll probably keep the emissions stuff even though it's ugly. Haven't decided on an exhaust yet--thinking FMF at this point. You could probably fab up some other kind of brackets for the skidplate--maybe using hose clamps, conduit clamps, or something similar. I haven't found another skidplate for the L besides the one that XR's Only sells. I think the XR230 has been out in Japan for a while though, and as far as I know it's the same bike as the L, so you might be able to find an XR230 skidplate somewhere (international).
