vibrations in the rear brake

2012 FLTRX
When I discovered the IDS (isolated drive system) I began to think that it had to be the cause.
Problem or wierd thing:
With clutch in and rear brake applied at about 40 MPH, I feel a vibration from the rear tire that feels like going over speed stripes as you approach a rural stoplight or the wakeup stripes along the edge of the interstate. The vibes are not quite as strong as the examples.

If the IDS is the source, I can't explain how.

It is 2012 without ABS brakes. The front brakes do not give the same vibrations.

The rear caliper is not free floating and in fact is bolted to the frame.
I'm feeling the engine vibrations!
End of subject.
