Maybe this will help someone with a similar issue. A few years ago I developed a coolant leak from the fluid outlet connection on the coolant reservoir. The coolant outlet had split and was leaking. Everyone wanted an insane amount of $ for a new reservoir.

I removed the reservoir and the outlet fitting. Cleaned the outlet and the split well with brake cleaner and glued with Gorilla glue. Before the glue set I added a hose clamp around the outlet to pull the split closed. After the glue set I chased the outlet threads with a pipe tap and reinstalled. That was at least two years ago and the repair is still holding. On my other bike the reservoir was still OK. To avoid it eventually splitting I added a hose clamp around the outlet as a preventive measure.
