2001 970m Belt issues HELP

Hi all,

I'm having an issue with my 2001 970m. The cogged belt(see pics) seems to keep walking and flipping itself over. Can someone help me out with a pic of their belts and pulleys on this model or similar?

Here is a pic

Am fairly certain that belt is not the correct one. Some units do use the smaller belt but if you look at your pulleys and that belt where it sits so low it looks like it would take the standard V.

Snuck outside and snapped a photo of each side of my pulley system...pardon the dirty machine!

If you need something else for photos or questions, let me know and I'll try and help

Top shot, front shot and a quick shot of the parts list in my manual

The belt looks very worn
