Can't remove carbs

I keep reading that the carbs are so easy to remove on every thread I've found but I can't get them to budge. I can't find anything with the detail my little brain needs to figure this out. I need to replace the choke cable and it's impossible to get to the nut with a wrench with the carbs on. Are there any other bolts or screws other than the ones holding the hoses on?

Thank you!

Imagine what you could have achieved after two beers!

To alcohol! The cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems.

Finally got around to putting the carbs, air box and tank back on. I can't remember where this one particular hose went to. It's the one safety wired underneath the rear carb in the pic. Any idea where this connects to?

It's a vacuum hose that connects to the fuel tap.
