Comparing the effort to push my throttle compared to my friends Dragon and even an older Artic cat is hard to push. Has anyone else had this issue? I put in a new throttle cable but it didn't help. The carb spring seems fairly stiff. Has anyone else had this issue? Any tips?

The Dragon, not sure about the Cat, is efi. Different setup. Try a new etech motor. Total different feel. Old tech vs new tech.
Although there could be something hanging up in your carbs.

The Cat is a late 90's with Carbs too. I will definitely need to pull the carbs after the snow stop flying.

Ditch the oil pump, go premix, do the carb spring mod and walaaaaa......pulls as easy as the etec. Easy peasy.....and premix is better for the motor.
