You have to drop the swingarm, the belt wraps the arm, so you have to take it loose from the frame in order to get the belt in place. I would recommend a service manual for your bike, for all the torque specs of the components you will need to remove, ie... brake caliper, shocks, swing arm pivot bolt, etc.., and for the rear wheel and belt alignment, and the belt tension. The belt tension is crucial, if it not tight enough you will wear the belt out faster or it will slip, and if it's too tight you can break the belt or spin the splines out of the front drive pulley. I know this from experience, overtightened the belt on mine earlier this summer, was fine with my wieght, but spun the pulley at a ralley with a passenger. If you need any further assistance or have any questions, feel free to ask.

coils can be tested dynamically with an oscilloscope which you probably do not have so your next best approach is a ohm meter. not knowing your coil will make it hard to suggest a reading but you can get the spec's from the manufacturer or web site. the primary side could be from one ohm to 3 to 5 typically, could be more depending on coil. you can also check the ohms on the secondary by probing the primary terminal and a secondary (plug wire hole) terminal. here you should have a few thousand ohms depending on coil. if you get no readings, then the coil is bad. by the way, if you are checking voltage as pyrhyc says, you will have 12 volts on both sides of the coil. why? most ignitions will open the ground side of the coil to make it fire because as the current is pulled down, the magnetic field will colapse inducing electrical current in the secondary thus firing the plug. one redneck check is to take a 12 volt battery and hook one wire to one primary terminal and drag the other wire across the other terminal (bike wires removed for test) and watch plugs, if you get fire, check module.
