I have seen a posting about this in the past. I don't think any won came up with a real good plan for it. Some one had a link to a company that sold some kind of plastic repair compound. But the main consensus was to replace it. I would not not recomend repairing it. Their are some used ones on E-bay or you could go this route:

I had a small hole on my YZ125 gas tank a while ago and fixed it myself with the epoxy from a fiber glass repair kit (bought at Canadian Tire for less then $15 at the time). Had the bike 2 more years after that with no problems :-)

You can take a piece of plastic to cover it up and rivet it into place i think, never done it myself but ive seen it done.

IMO plastic flexes too much to trust a repair. eBay is ok but you don't always know what you are getting. These guys would be my choice. $175 to $199.

I bought a wr 450 tank on ebay about a month ago it cost £18 + £10 p&p and was in great condition, just check the feedback comments.
