The shop manual says to inspect the sprockets when replacing the belt. A belt drive pulley gets polished with use, it doesn't wear in the same way a chain driven sprocket does. If there are any marks from the rock, file/polish them out and reuse the pulley you have. A belt change on a victory isn't a big job, I would do it myself and save a bunch of coin. A Harley on the other hand, plan on a day for the first time (changed my dad's once on his Harley). I would think a belt and labor could be had for $400 ($300 parts and hour of labor).
As far as how long to run it with the rock damage....as long as it is in the middle of the belt, you can wait a little bit, but I wouldn't really want to be far from home and have it break. It's a tough call, it might never break, or it could break pulling onto the highway tomorrow. Just never know.
