I would suggest that you remove the spindle and at least turn the inner bearing by hand and see if you feel a rough spot or a slight catch in the bearing. If the pulleys were causing all of it then they should be somewhat sloppy on the shafts which would let the ribs of the pulleys tick together. If I was going that far I would remove the shifter and replace the bearing anyway as it is not expensive. Just be sure when you re-assemble it the set screw is in the slot on the shifter rail.

A bit of belt fray on the edge is normal I would say because the spring tension is what is putting a squeeze on the belt, all of mine did and I used gates belts also from a parts store.
