ZX shrouds are very, very rare. To those who are a lot smarter than me they would be YZ shrouds
No smartassness intended. Thought maybe someone was producing aftermarket shrouds that were specifically for their aftermarket tank and they were calling'em ZX shrouds.

What do you mean by turning the nlet down? Im a bit confused? Thansk again for the help
The brass carb inlet rotates. I'm assuming he means just to rotate the inlet down. On my 02 with the Zipty tank my carb inlet is pointing approximately at an 8 o'clock position when looking directly at it.
For the right petcock to work without hitting my FMF powerbomb, I had to rotate the petcock 180 degrees(So it faces forward). The fuel line then loops back, is ziptied to the petcock. Routed along the inner edge of the tank. A zipty is loosely looped through rear motor mount, so as to be able for fuel line to be held in its position and be routed under the manifold. Make sure to leave the stock petcock to fuel line tee long, so the other line stays close to the carb and not the rear of the cylinder/timing chain adjuster.
To make the loop back from the right petcock, use some hard fuel line(at auto parts store). You can make the hard line route back to almost where you need to route under the manifold, or you can use a spring in the supplied fuel line. Spring should be a little bit tight when inserting, and be thin and the extended kind. ie. Kind of like the one used in a retractable ink pen, but larger diameter. This keeps the line from kinking. It should be inserted just enough for you to insert the line on the petcock nipple.
Getting to the petcock is now a bit of a pain, especially when hot, but it was the best solution I could come up with without going to a Clarke.
Other things I don't particularly like is the use of only one of the stock tank mounts. It seems secure enough and I use some safety wire on the back tank mount just in case, but it would not have taken much to fix the petcock and tank mount problem without loosing tank capacity. I wonder who is doing there R&D.

The Zip Ty tank sets the gas lower on the bike and is skinnier at your knees than the other aftermarket tanks.
I LOVE mine... compared the the stock '01 426 that is.
