Hot staple and Plastic weld the tanks. Cheap and easy if its just the common filler neck cracks.

I've got the same, cracked filler neck on an '11 Crossfire 8; Looking to get it plastic welded (best fix) but have yet to find a welder who does plastic welding.
U can use a soldering iron to melt the plastic back together.

Make sure to buy/build a brace to provide some support from the back and forth forces that is stressing the tank in the first place. I still can believe that cat thought it was acceptable to have the tank being the only thing to stop back and forth movement.

Hey BradM8 can you explain where the bracing needs to be done at? I am having a hard envisioning where a brace is needed.
