Even although you have just had it serviced, the warning light is triggered by the mileage traveled. So if the belt appears to be Ok, then resetting it has to occur at the point when the indicator comes on. Having said that, I understand that scooter belts can weaken (and break) from internal weakening over time (heat and stress) and not just from external wear and measurement. Over the years I have read about belts breaking (other scooter brands & models) from high use and/or mileage even though they still externally measured within spec.
The "service limit" for the Majesty belt is 27mm (shop manual) or 12,500 miles - so to be safe it should all be interpreted as "replace belt upon the soonest of 12,500 miles or 27mm width"
If they have not replaced the belt in your recent service, then you could perhaps return to them to have it done, or reset the idiot light for you. OR you could do it yourself and see how you go.
If you're wondering where the area that the diagram above is indicating, the reset coupler is the white plastic coupler located under the tailpiece where the battery is located. The rubber strap securing the battery holds it in position and it is the only white coupler in the vicinity of the battery. I also read that you need to have the park brake off to perform this exercise.
I got some of this info from a great site dedicated to your bike. Check it out here. Thanks for using FixYa. A FixYa rating is a grewat reward for my time taken to address this with you. Cheers!

hold the decompression lever in and kick it slow then let go of the decompression lever and give it a good kick without using the decompression lever.

Clymer, or Hayes make them, but a good one is the factory version from Yamaha. Maybe used from e-bay, but a dealer will have it.

Hi there Longhatx....Ok...Turn the crankshaft counterclockwise until the " I " mark on the rotor is aligned with the stationary pointer on the crancase cover.Fit the timing chain onto both camshaft sprockets and install the camshafts on the cylinder head.The camshafts should be installed onto the cylinder head so that the exaust cam sprocket punch mark " E " and the intake cam sprocket punch mark " I " align with the surface of the cylinder head,both marks facing out of course towards their prospective ports.thats about it .Please leave some feedback if this has helped . ride on.

Testimonial: "thanks alot very helpful cheers"
Keep in mind that it has an accelerator pump and squirts a big stream of fuel every time you twist the throttle. No one should tell you simply "open the throttle slightly'' whilst kicking. After a couple kicks, you would have it completely, hopelessly flooded. This is the most common reason for new owners' inability to start. After the first squirt(if needed) it's best to put the throttle hand on the throttle housing (off of the twist grip) to avoid opening the throttle each kick. If it becomes over fueled, leave the throttle closed and pull the red hot start button, then kick. Failure to start will be the result of too much fuel or too little fuel and you will have to learn the appropriate procedure for the particular bike and temperature. The de-comp lever and kick procedure is another story in itself. I highly recommend putting in a Hot Cams exhaust cam with auto de-compressor to make your kicking drill much easier.
