Just throw a new throttle cable in... the lever will be silky smooth, just like new.

Try disconnecting both of the cables from the engine and transmission. Then operate the control to see if the feeling or drag changes. If it doesn't feel any different you will probably find one of the cables is dragging. You can isolate which one by pulling out the silver button on the side of the control, which disconnects the trans cable and let's you work the throttle by itself.

Cables are the first place to start...
