Default Weak-Sauce Acceleration

So I've had my first build for a couple of weeks now. Great bike and all was running well until a couple of days ago.

Every time I am riding at around 35 miles an hour and I slow down to about 10, accelerating back up seems to be a problem. I can't just gas it up full throttle like I used to, I have to slowly accelerate to get back up to speed or for a more speedy alternative I have to choke up my bike. But we all know how much of a hassel that can be.

I'm wondering if anyone has had a similar problem in the past and knows any fixes to this problem? My throttle cable seem to be operational so that leads me to believe it could be something in my carburetor? Any feedback is much appreciated.
