Newbie needs help
Just bought myself 2 2003 F-12x machines. One is running fine. The other I have had the same problem now twice after only riding them about 2.5 hours each total. After riding for about an hour and going about 40 mph, I get the warning light. The first time I turned it off and turned it back on, rode shortly thereafter without incident - after reading the forum here, I rode for about the same amount of time and it unfortunately happened again, pulled the code and it came up a 45. From reading the code it seems to have something to do with the waste gate sensor or actuator. I am not mechanically inclined when it comes to motors but I am handy so a slow walk through whatever I can do would be greatly appreciated. I just hope I didn't buy myself a huge problem. Prior to purchase I did a bay test for about half an hour and my friend really put them both through their paces. I also wanted to know if continuing to ride is causing any more damage or am I just taking a chance at being stuck in the middle of nowhere? Any help would be appreciated.

I always thought a 45 was a TPS sensor failure. Most of the time unless the engine is heavily corroded, it is an indication of a bad ECU.
