2003 z570 Just died going down trail.......

Sled was going great for the past few weeks did 100 miles yesterday and no problems and today I went 12 miles stopped and filled up the gas, only took 1.3 gallons and checked the oil, it was fine. went about 4 more miles and on a straight away it just died out on me. the pull cord was hanging out about a foot right after i stopped. Lifted the hood up and notice that the housing around the recoil was cracked in good shape and that the recoil looked a little crooked and not paralel to the engine. Attempted to spin the engine and the recoil would hit and stop on the housing in both directions. Any Ideas where I should ook first?

ide start with the recoil, first thing you come to and its obviously not right, pull that and keep digging till you get to the main issue, last thing youll find is the crank case, which leaves the fly wheel magneto and stator, maybe youll get lucky and find an easy fix in there
