06 arctic cat vtwin 650 engine problems

I have a 06 cat 650 v twin, i bought it new. I was four wheeling with a bunch of buddies, i started it up for a good 15 min and i didn't even make it a mile before the engine just lost power an died, i replaced the battery and the power has a very hard time turning over. I will not pull start, the pull start will rip my hand off. I took of the recoil and put a torqe wrench and will turn the motor. Any idea what i did to the motor. i'm hope that i do not have to rebuild.

If you pull the spark plugs and remove the belt and it's still difficult to roll over I'd say your spending some cash. If not you'll have a place to start.

09 first run MudPro
SLD welded

Secondary clocked to B-3
150 grams of Speedwerx rollers
Speedwerx pipe
Breather looped
Cooler racked
Strobes from Pondtunes (should be worth 10hp right?)
