Sounds like a fuel blockage. Pull out the fuel filter and replace it!

SOURCE: carb trouble on harley Sportster

Not saying this will be your solution, but certainly worth considering. We had some Onan generators that sat too long at out RV dealership and were basically told carb would need replacing, as they do not have rebuild kits. At $500 a shot we decided to dump some Lucas fuel treatment and fresh gas in it. We basically tripled recommended dosage on bottle, and when engine ran we had enough lucas in there that it smoked like crazy but ran. We would run a little more through it, shut it down, let it sit for a few hours, start again, run a little, shut it down. Then let all that cleaner sit in overnight, and filled it with fresh gas again, and started it up, and after an hour or so of running steady, quit smokin, and ran like a charm. $10 worth of Lucas vs $500 carb. Did same to 3 other generators with same problem, and 2 out of 3 were cured. As it says on their site, too much will not damage the engine, so we didn't worry about that. After they were running good again, we replaced spark plugs and they were good to go, and owners were thrilled. Maybe we got lucky, but for $10-$15, I'd try it.

I don't work on the Twin Cam engines but if it'surging, I'd suspect a lean fuel air mixture is causing the problem whether it's carbureted or fuel injected.

Good Luck

Check your fuel pressure. If it's low, then check fuel strainer on pump for restriction.

Harley troubleshooting

Does the noise happen only when you pull in on the clutch (disengage the clutch), and go away when you let the clutch out (engage the clutch)?

If so, that's the clutch plates rattling until the spring load is reapplied to clamp the up.

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.
