Riding Etiquette

Any comments/stories re biker behaviour in queue's of traffic. eg: line of cars waiting to get into a swap meet. Ok to ride to the front of line as they normally have plenty of parking spots?.

Bike electricians

Anyone know where can get starter motors rebuilt/replacements? I'm in SA. Can get replacements from the states but freight is about the same cost as the part.
Bike in question is Yammie XV1000
