any issue with 4x4 stuck on and bad diff?

Hello this is my first post to the forum, i recently acquired a 06 brute force 650i in a trade. The bike has a couple issues that i plan on fixing over the next couple of months. The main issue is a damaged front diff. One side of the axle was removed allowing whatever to get inside ( not sure how long it was driven like this). But where the front "drive-shaft" goes into the diff is very loose, the play is quite excessive but its still engaged in 4x4. So my question is, being stuck in 4x4 and obviously the diff is shot (is cracked in 2 spots), is riding the bike around going to cause any more damage? Maybe on the motor side?

Yes if it locks it could take out the devel gear and transmission. Get that Diff fixed or replaced now. At least take the driveline off. That way when it locks and throws you over the bars the engine will survive ..

Ok I'll take care of it first then, was looking on ebay they run about 450-700$ used. IF you bought a used one is there anything you would replace? I guess bearings and seals?

Yeah minimum. You will want to pull it down and do a full inspection and cleaning on it anyway. It will most probably need diff-loc disks as well. There are people parting-out Brutes here too. Might check in the For Sale section.
