I have a 2017 Kodiak EPS. I have it in my garage and when I need get out away I put in neutral and just push out of the way without turning it on. last couple of times when I go turn the handle if feels like the break are turning on. If I keep handle bar straight rolls out fine. some help please?

That’s normal. Your just feeling the resistance/friction of the big tires. All 4 wheelers have the same feeling or effect when the front wheels are not straight and the more they are turned the harder it will be to push your quad.

Agreed with above response. Simple nuff. If you give your machine a nice quick push, it will steer a bit better

My kodiak has 25h on the clock and both breakdisks are bent alittle so the pads are skweeking wery annoing how is it possible only bean in light use
That does seem odd. Actually bent, or just worn and grooves?

This is probably a long-shot in addition to what is mentioned by @Rob-c ... It is not real common but Yamaha disc brakes have been known to have the "tab" get hung up on the pad inside the caliper. That can cause a pad to not be inline with the rotor so who knows what the result might be. I had it happen to one of my 07 Grizzly 700 front brakes. I didn't have rubbing but the braking wasn't as strong as I preferred. When I found the issue, only 2/3 of the one brake pad was making contact and that same brake pad's tab was slightly bent.

Like said, not real common but I have read of this happening to multiple other Yamaha owners that have machines with disc brakes.
