I think the main difference is in the suspensions/setups. ZL's tend to be a tad more plush while the ZR's are set up to be more aggressive.

to the average rider, the difference is probably not noticeable.

Yep. I also think the ZR's have rebuildable Shocks and the ZL's do not.

ZR's and ZL's used the same engines, where they were models with the same displacement; e.g. the 500 and 600. The ZL was also offered with the older 550 and 580 piston port engines. The ZL580 was discontinued after 2000 and the ZL 500 after 2003 model year. The ZL skid frame used a different geometry, as well as non-rebuildable shocks, from the ZR's. The front a-arms were also a different construction, for some years at least, and differnt spindles, but I don't if that gave them different geometry.
