You need to know the width (probably 1 1/2", 2" or 3"), the pitch (distance between the teeth, 8 or 11 mm) and the number of teeth. You can probably get an standard replacement belt.
The complete clutch assembly must be removed.

thanks for the reply! i was hoping i could just take the front pulley off, looks like i will need a clutch puller after all.

You don't need a clutch hub puller. You can remove the clutch disk pack and the clutch basket without a puller.

There is a description on removing the clutch assy on my web site:

All you have to do is remove is front pulley , then count the teeth on both pulleys and take whats left of your belt head over to a bike shop , they will match your belt. Then when you install new belt , slip belt over clutch pulley and put it on motor pulley and push the motor pulley on to shaft.
(you may or not have to loosen transmission)
