With respect to changing out rollers, I always think of the guy on youtube who "upgraded" the rollers on his TMAX and damaged the bike when the final gearing could not handle the increase in torque caused by the lighter weights.
Lighter rollers would not increase torque. They would just hold it in a lower gear longer. Engine still puts out the same torque and transmission is designed for the engine out-put regardless of the belt position.
