It can be plastic welded for a fraction of the cost of new.
Let me guess, you have a YZF400/426?

yeah jsut get it plastic welded!! but the gas tank might have two layers! on the inside there is sometimes a layer that doesn't weaken from gasoline and then an outer shell which is the outside where your graphics are and stuff!!
