OK no problem it is pretty much just like mine. You will need to take off the foot rest and the fender skirts on that side of the bike, then you will remove the belt cover which is about 8-10 8mm bolts. I would recommend pressure washing the bike first to remove any extra dirt/mud and grass that may have accumulated on it, plus it will make finding the bolts a lot easier. Once you have removed the cover you will need to remove the 17mm nut off of the front drive pulley and gently pull the pulley off, be careful to hold the movable sheath that holds the rollers. This would be a good time to clean the rollers and spray them with a little silicone spray allowing them to operate freely and have better acceleration and deceleration. To clean it I would recommend some B-52 De-Greaser it removes belt dust easily but it will not harm the plastic parts. Once you have put everything back together put the spacer (thick round shaft) back on the shaft with the splines and put the belt over the rear pulley first and using the spacer "WALK" it on all the way (this will help get it on the rest of the way) then replace the front drive pulley and snug the 17mm bolt up with your fingers and spin the pulley to make sure the belt isn't pinched and operating freely, then reverse what you done to remove everything.
Let me know if you need anything else.

You can convicted if you have a impact, and if you don't have one you can always use a strap wrench the kind with the heavy rubber strap. Boss if I remember correctly you only torque them to 8ft/lbs. so pretty much just hand snug.

Here you go. Use the two bolts from the cover to remove the belt. Their is some good reading in here too.

I have not had a chance to change my belt yet but i had the bike out for a rip around the yard and when i slow down to a complete stop without using my brake and then try to take off i can here a squeeling noise which i think is my belt and it feels like i am holding my brake on when i try to take off but im actually not?. Is that just a sign that the belt is done?
