For the last few days my throttle has been acting strangely. It snaps back when I first use it, but after a time it begins to drag until it appears to stick. This process has be reoccurring for several days and I am wondering whether the issue could be cable related or something is wrong with the push/pull pulley attached to the carb. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I lubed them Friday (although I have since read that WD 40 is not the best lube to use but) It snaps back like brand new for a short time then it begins to gradually give a weaker response and this cycle has continued for a few days.

Try using a cable lube designed for motorcycles.
