I'm possibly too late but I agree with that. You could always try looking on www.rsownersclub.co.uk for other ideas if you're still stuck.

How do you mean it wont start?

I know the RST's have problems with the heat getting at the starter motors and tend not to start until cooled down a little.

What colour are you spark plugs, and add more general detail about the problem.
