Not sure exactly what you mean by plastic tank protection, but check out www.thetankslapper.com might prove what you are looking for.

Nobody currently makes a protector for the fuel tank at the present. I guess that most of us on the track just try to be careful with it. because of the design, it would be difficult to make something for it. If your bike goes down and the tank hits, you probably have more pressing problems, but we all hope for the best.

A bigger probelms is that the left hand side of the tank os very easily scratched with buckles/zips on you riding gear....

Why not make a cheap fibreglass tank???
