Default Yamaha G29 Rear Grinding After 6" Jakes Long Travel Lift

I finished installing a 6" Jakes long travel lift on my 2011 Yamaha golf cart. Install went well and everything drives well, but after I stop, there is a grinding sound that comes from the back near the engine/axle. This only happens after stopping, not while stopping and not while moving. It almost like something continues to spin for a bit after I stop and then grinds to a stop (the grind sound decelerates to a stop). Not sure if it is my imagination, but it seems better if I stop while heading up hill.

Is this something that needs to be adjusted after the lift when in? It did not do this before the lift went in.

Thanks

After doing more reading, I am wondering if this is a result of the angle of the transaxle changing with the 6" lift. It tilts back more now and maybe the gears/breaking mechanism now do not have enough fluid coverage. I will pick up some Yamalube Friction Modified gear oil on Monday and hope this works.

Problem is solved. Turns out when I put a 6" Jakes Long Travel kit on, it changed the angle of the rear gear/wet brake reservoir. This tilt back in angle caused there to not be enough Yamalube Modified Friction gear oil in contact with the wet brake. The solution was to jack the back up and add about 4 more ounces of gear oil to transaxle. Problem solved, no more grinding. The tech at the Yamaha dealer said this is common and they do it with all 6" lifts they install.
