Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
2. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
3. Air fuel mixture adjustment too lean.
4. Pilot/slow fuel jet clogged.
5. Faulty accelerator pump.
6. Float level too low.
7. Float bowl contaminated old fuel, water, dirt, rust, etc.
8. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
9. Fuel line to carburetor kinked or pinched.
10. Fuel filter clogged.
11. Intake manifold leak.
12. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.

You will have to check the carbs it seems the gas isn't flowing in freely into the float chamber and filling it up.

Motor cycle starts once it is warmed up stalls out

Have the carburetors serviced. Sounds like a fuel pump problem(if your bike has one). If not it is because the idle mix is too lean.

2007 flhx starts,but cuts off on take off.

Does the bike run if you give it throttle past idle? The motor should accelerate and gain RPM's when doing so. If it does and gains RPM's but is sluggish in response, I would check to make sure it has good gas flow. Check flow off the petcock, if good, check gas filter on the motor side. If still not running correctly, I would check the air cleaner inside to make sure some critter didn't get in there and make a nest or something. Beyond those ideas, I would bring it to a profession shop or a friend in the know.

Wont run /idle

i'd start with removing the carbs and giving them a thorough cleaning as when bikes sit for so long, the carbs begin to get gummy/varnished from the old gas.

check for blocked holes in the pilot jet & main jet and look for "hard & dried up" gas in passages. be careful of the float bowl gasket as to not tear it or you will need a replacement.
