Plot with Multiple x-Axes and y-Axes using the fill function

Following this example:
I understand how to plot with multiple axes. But when I add the fill function to display a confidence interval to each line the second fill function messes up the axes properties. My code is:
figure
x1 = 0:0.1:40;
y1 = 4.*cos(x1)./(x1+2);
fill([x1 fliplr(x1)],[y1+0.1 fliplr(y1-0.1)],'b')
alpha(0.2)
line(x1,y1,'Color','k')
ax1 = gca; % current axes
ax1.XColor = 'r';
ax1.YColor = 'r';
ax1_pos = ax1.Position; % position of first axes
ax2 = axes('Position',ax1_pos,...
'XAxisLocation','top',...
'YAxisLocation','right',...
'Color','none');
x2 = 1:0.2:20;
y2 = x2.^2./x2.^3;
fill([x2 fliplr(x2)],[y2+0.1 fliplr(y2-0.1)],'r','Parent',ax2)
alpha(0.2)
line(x2,y2,'Parent',ax2,'Color','k')
If I comment out the second fill function it works nicely upon getting annoying tickmarks on ax2 from ax1. Where is my problem? Thanks in advance!

It seems Matlab is resetting ax2 settings to default after the fill command.
add this line after the fill command to set them again.
set(ax2,'XAxisLocation','top',...
'YAxisLocation','right',...
'Color','none');
