Just had ours replaced in Martinique by Didier at Amel.   Both pulleys came with the kit and I was given the old parts for inspection. 

While the timing belt did show some signs of wear it was still in good shape and the pulleys seemed to be perfect; smooth and easy to turn
Still, it was a good call to replace them as now there is one less potential problem.

The motor is coming up on 6,000 hrs now and is still operating flawlessly.  (Starter Motor notwithstanding:) )
