Problems with my 11 sportsman 550 xp eps

I've got 2 issues with my 11 sportsman 550 xp. There is a clicking noise that sounds like it is coming from the front right side. Is this the CV axle or something more serious? Also, not a huge issue, but when I put the machine into reverse and try to go back, it takes a bit of force, the jumps back. Is this the belt?

The clicking could be a CV joint and the cause of the reverse problem

Thanks, how would I check to see if that is the issue? Also, if it ends up being that, what would I need to get and replace?

Won't know what you need till you determine the cause - it might end up being a bad bearing. Who knows? Only the shadow knows?

Is there anyway to check myself or do I need an actual mechanic.
