2005 sportman 800 efi 850Km on it.
Bike has been very well maintained.
Just started having issues with awd
Seems to work going forwards. But in reverse holding the button to have awd. It sound like its grinding gears.
Any ideas what to do or check. Pod works 100% fresh diff oil. Driveshaft seal is sweating out oil on front diff but not leaking out. I have no idea what's going on.

Hmm... could be prop shaft yoke or axle splines about worn and stripped but you don't have much mileage for that. Or could be a roll cage in the front housing cracked. I'd start checking/inspecting oils first and then yokes and axles. If nothing obvious you might try getting it in a strain on an incline in reverse to see if you can make it show up. Could possibly be something in the tranny too.
Let us know what you find.
