So I ordered new 19g 25x17 Dr. Pulley weights for my 2015 Mp3 500 abs version. I also ordered the sliders for it. Can you please recomand a link that shows me how to change them? Do I need special tools? Does anyone can explain me the hole process please?
Also can you recomand me a good belt for this change?
Many thanks!!

two big sockets, a impact driver and torque wrench.
There is a special tool needed to hold the variatiator to undo the nut that holds it together.
The torque wrench to put it back together properly.
You can manage without the impact but it makes one of the nuts much easier.

Also, the best belt is the OEM one, from your dealer. A close second is the Malossi, which will save you some money over OEM.

The Malossi belt is probably better made than the OEM belt. It does cost a bit more, but a lot of people think it is worth the extra cost. It is made in Japan by the same company that makes OEM belts for Honda. The Piaggio belt is also made by a very good company, Mitsuboshi, somewhere in Asia.

Correction Mitsuboshi is used by suzuki

Honda uses Bando belts

and my advice stick to the stock belts

All belts are kevlar and all belts are made in China

Correction- All belts for this model have some sort of Aramid fiber in them and the ones that are labeled Made in Japan are not made in China.
