Have you put the Kodiak up on some jack stands and then slowly rotated the rear tires listening to see if you can tell just where it is coming from?

A automotive stethoscope may help or even a long screwdriver with the blade held against different parts and the handle on your ear will work.

Try with all 4 tires up off of the ground and see what happens.

If you get it narrowed down to the rear you could always pull both rear axles and put it back down onto the ground and move it to see what happens.

You are in a area that unless someone has had the same problem you are going to have to figure it out on your own, all we can do is to offer suggestion on how to check something.

Is there any chance your rear brake is stuck / dragging? Causing it to chatter? The foot lever is known to gum up and need cleaning

I don’t think it’s the rear breaks I’ve actually had a fully rebuilt diff in the bike breaks were good and then I baught a 2nd hand diff thinking the rebuilt diff was making the noise

Any wear marks on the spindle from the axle or differential etc ? How did the old and new bearing’s come out and go into spindle ? Easy or hard ? Have you greased the upper and lower A-arm pivot bolts that goes through the spindle ?

I have a 07 700 Grizzly same problem
My guess would be a bad CV axle joint.
