    KTM 525 XC Won’t Crank .. Bad Engine ?

    What up fellas, To make it short & sweet I was woods racing - corner coming up down shifted from 4th to 2nd getting ready to back ol’ girl in sideways and she just shuts off on me. Sounded like an electric generator turning off. Tried to start her up and I just keep hearing this high pitched electric current sound but no crank. Once I got her home I warrantied out my battery cause it was totally fried (tender wouldn’t even pick up there was a battery to charge) I’m getting power from battery to relay to starter. 7.4 Volts on starter when hitting the start button. I tried to push start the Bike In 2nd , 10-15mph drop the clutch and the wheels won’t hook it just keeps sliding - wheels are locked up. Pretty much she’s not turning over. Could it be a bad engine or transmission?? If the trans is bad would it affect crank ? Cause I got nothing in neutral either ? Any information would be highly appreciated. This is my first issue in 4 years.
