The video...can't be uploaded? But, I see the cable actuating what looks like a spring into the left side of the carb. Could it just be gummed up?
It sounds to me like it might be stuck...I just tried again and now when I try to shift into gear it seems to be getting enough fuel that it drives to jump ahead (without throttle) into reverse when I shift down to go into drive.Is the choke opening when you release it or is it staying closed or partially closed?
On my old 2000 Kodiak the cable would stick until I pulled it apart and lubed it

Actually if you read the 2019-2020 Yamaha Manuel it tells you how much grease should be used.I went through the repair manual for 3 different Kodiaks. My old 2000 400, my 2026 700 and the manual for the 2019 450 and none of them show to load up the housing as you can see in Vincent's photos or the above video. It does say to lubricate the weights but my manuals don't say how much to use.
Well, I only had time today to tear everything apart before I had to run back to work but I'm feeling pretty confident that this insane mouse nest in the CVT case and packed into the clutch is the reason for my poor performance.
Also, shout out to the person who suggested using a ratchet strap to hold the sheave in place in order to loosen that 22MM bolt...for posterity, here's what it looked like when I did it:

And a look at the deplorable state of the clutch and the pile of greased up mouse guts I pulled out of each roller sleeve:
