Proper repair is best left to professionals. Autoparts suppliers have gasoline tolerant sealants as a temporary fix. Remove and drain tank, scuff area around leak and apply as directed.

Defuel the fuel tank, remove it from motorcycle and remove its retainer bolt. Remove any rust or dirt, pour any thinner, shake and drain out. Dry and replace the tank.

If the motorcycle fuel tank in metal, you must drain it, clean it out, and weld it. If the tank is plastic, there is no way to repair, replace it.

If you are still miles away from any motorcycle shop, look for a store and buy laundry soap. Patch the leak with the soap to temporarily stop the leakage.
