He has a leak Bob. Guessing you don't have a spare for sale? German ebay may be the best place to look.

You could try tank sealer Chris. Its a bit risky though as it can block the internal tubes. Depending on where the leak is it may be possible to solder it. I did this once on a Jeep tank which was like a string vest but I did back it up with a tank sealant as well which was fairly easy to do on a 20 Gallon tank with the sender removed which meant the fuel pickup would not get blocked.

I do have a spare for mine and it`s in excellent condition.
However, I don`t want to let it go in case the one on my bike deteriorates
Depends on how much I was offered I guess...........
