I can tell you the cam timing is one tooth different on the WR and it has a higher output alternator but physically other than lights I believe they are the same. Run the Vin on Carfax. it will tell you the model and year for free

Try looking for a kickstand. I think that about the only physical thing that you would notice... the only other way would be to get pinned on a straight it should go faster than about 78 mph.
