Front end shake when let off throttle

Hello all, I have a 2007 Arctic Cat 650 h1 and it shakes in the front end when letting off the throttle. This happens in 2wd and 4wd. Breaking does not change it and is for sure not related, it happens even at low speed. It drives fine when applying throttle ( a bit of a whine noise) Would this maybe be the front differential?

Thanks for any help!

hmm not sure I will check it, new to ATV repairs, was handy when I was younger with motorcycles and dirt bikes.

Best I can describe it is even if you go a few feet, from a stop, and then let off the throttle it’s like something spinning out after. Shudders the whole front end and can see some movement in the engine body. Would that be a u joint symptom?

I'd go over every component of the front end, rear suspension as well. Check alignment, bushings, ball joints, tie rod ends. If you get someone to grab each wheel/tire, and have them rock it , both from the top, then side to side, take your time and look for something that has slop/ excessive movement, you may want to try Rick's Steerlite bushings, also. Just because something was changed by previous owner, could have used defective (Made in China ) parts, though that crap usually is ok for a while then it turns to crap.

Ii does not sound like u joints. If it's spinning noise then shudders, look at your primary clutch and rollers.
