Noob soon to have 950 V-Twin Has Questions

I'm googling and looking in the Orange Crush forum, but I have a couple noob questions. Back story is this will be KTM number 4 for me, but first v-twin. I'm super excited. Buddy I know (possibly an inmate) has a 2007 KTM 950 SM with 2300 miles on it, and it is BONE STOCK. I should have it very soon. Deal is done via phone, since we know one another for a bit.

So, the first things that come to mind...

1. De-smog - What does that get me if I do it?
2. If de-smogged, or not, JD Jet Kit, or another brand? I assume they wake up with jetting like the RFS motored bikes I have or have had?
3. Is a mild re-gearing in order? Last v-twin I had a 1000 Multi woke up VERY nicely with a 1 tooth in front switch.

That's it for a good start... I read about carb upgrades, etc. But I'm trying not to go overboard, it's a hooligan bike, not a track bike (yet).

Tail of the Dragon at Deal's Gap... Avoid it now, do a trackday.

Do not do business with Myrtle West Cycle... Not a reputable vendor by a long shot.

JD doesn't offer jet kits for the LC8's. FactoryPro makes a good kit though.
