First question is ...I backed my ATV out of the bed of my pickup. I stopped it while the front wheels were still elevated on the ramps and noticed if i grab the wheels there seems to be a little slop in them. I can turn them back and forth just a little. Is this slop normal? It doesnt seem like it should be.
2nd question: when i sit with the machine running in park and turn the wheels from left to right and back i can feel no difference in the resistance whether the dps is s
et at max or min. Shouldn't it turn easier on max even at idle?

THE SLOP IS PROBABLY IN THE TIE ROD ENDS. Get a grease needle, lift the seals and pump them full. VERY little grease from factory.
Can Ams I don't think provide much assist at idle no matter what setting. DPS draws a lot of power and stator makes little at idle.

If the slop is in turning the handlebars, it probably is the tie rods, either loose nuts or dried out ball joints. Easy if you can jack under the front center just enough to get wheels off floor. push on the wheels and watch what the ends of the tie rods do.
The handle bars will turn a little before you actually see the rubber turning when it is on the ground while stopped.
If you mean, one wheel starts to turn before the other in a forward rotation of wheels, its the normal visco loc activity.
