No idea, not even what the 500 one is. Belts are bought not by size but by part number. Do not be tempted to buy any belt that isn't original equipment manufacturer as they have proven many times to be less good value.

Non OEM belts may seem cheap therefore good value, but many owners have proven that non OEM supposedly 'performance' items have a nasty habit of failing unexpectedly often before the normal service interval. Then with the hassle of recovery, cost of replacement again and the general annoyance of a breakdown makes them less of a good deal.
OEM belts often last easily as long as the service interval, and can last twice as long and when they fail they seem to give a bit of warning, at least the 500 Mitsuboshi belts do by giving off 'fluff' so overall cost less pence per mile than cheaper alternatives.

Hope your convinced to go oem route . There is a post knocking around about a non oem belt shredding at speed and tangling in the clutch locking up the rear wheel scary stuff!
