I am blindly trying to determine if I have an issue with the splines on the right front cv axel, an issue with the splines in the Dif, or no issue at all. Here’s my situation. If I raise my 400 foreman (all 4 wheels), start the bike and hold the left front wheel tight while giving light throttle the wheel wants to pull but I can forcibly stop it a while the right front wheel spins. Good. If I do the same while holding the left front wheel there is almost no resistance resistance at all. I can simply place my pinky on it to stop it. I’ve tried this in both forward and reverse with no difference. Also, if I turn the left front wheel by hand the rear wheels want to engage, but if I turn the right front wheel by hand the rear wheels aren’t really engaging and the wheel seems to spin fairly freely (no grinding noises). I don’t have somone at the snap of my finger to help hold both wheels at the same time to see what results I get. Just wondering if the left axel is the more dominant over the right axel or if there is an issue before tearing it apart to diagnose?

Sounds like you might have stripped splines on the right front CV.
