    03 msx sputters after turning

    I have an 03 MSX that runs great until I turn it. After turning the ski starts to sputter and lose rpm's. The check engine light will come on. After laying off throttle for a while the check engine light will go out. Ski will not run good after that and continue to sputter on way back to dock. Very frustrated with this ski! Is there some sort of sensor in ski that would be affected by steering? Any help is appreciated!

    Welcome

    This is an MSX 140 with 2-stroke Ficht fuel injected engine, not the Weber turbo engine, correct?

    Yes, 2 stroke Ficht engine.

    Start by checking fuel pressure at the Schrader valve tee.

    Should be just over 20 PSI when engine is cranking or running.

    Is there an accompanying icon on the dash with the warning light? Im going to take a stab and say you have the broken wire on the exhaust temp sensor. Overheat is one of the few things that cause a limp mode.
