Polaris Sportsman Tire Drag

Helping my brother in law with his 1997 Polaris Sportsman 500. When driving the right side rear tire only will drag for a second. It happens once per tire revolution. On soft ground you can see the drag marks from the tire catching and dragging and while on pavement it will almost throw you off the atv. It only happens on the rear, right tire. Anyone else experience this? Thanks in advance.

If that Polaris has the terf-loc rear end anything is possible but it will be a bearing of CV joint. Just pull it apart and see.
