My fuel tank recently begun having cracks on the right side(where the exhaust is). I think its was caused by the extreme heat of the exhaust expanding the plastic and when it cooled down, caused the cracks.
Is this a common problem? Right now its just cracks, but i fear one day while riding fuel will start leaking out and the whole tank will be in pieces.
