Ned's the one to know about these things.  Check out his website.
My Monday morning Quarter backing was the same thought Ned had WRT:
"dies immediately"..........................................

My 2 cents are the ignition switch AND/or the ISV.
-Scott by BOSTON  I'll be doing an iginiton switch later this week

> Ask the Question:
> Once running what would cause it to quit?
>      No fuel or No Spark
> Your comment "Turn key again, cranks fine, starts after about 2 cycles."
>      Since it starts again quite quickly
>      one would assume the fuel has not stopped.
>      So electrical seems to be what is left.
> I suspect the ignition switch.
>      Intermittent contact when starting
>      Intermittent contact when releasing the key
> Further testing would show answers, but unless there I cannot continue.
> I hope this gives you something to think about.
