Help! 918 Won't start!

Hey guys, I'm the guy that got the 918 by accident
Anyways, I did all the oil and coolant today, took her for about a 20 minute ride, everythings awesome. Started first try, idled right, everything. Battery is new btw.
Then come back inside, decide to go back out for a little ride about an hour and a half later and the things starts and dies. Then I use the choke thinking it's maybe not hot enough and it idles at 1500 then dies. Then I do it again and mess with the fuel enrichener NOW it idles at 5000rp then decreases to sub-1000 over the course of about 4 seconds and dies. Now just turns over, starts at under 1000rpm and dies. What gives?

Try changing the fuel as it may have dirt or water in it then it's a case of checking fuel delivery and spark plugs etc.
