No, I'm not saying that have to come out, just saying ours easier without the surge tank.
If you loosen the handlebars you can have enough slack to remove the cable on that end, and will give you plenty of slack on the carbs. Then you will need gently pry the cable out of the slot for the fuel enrichment plungers.

I've got the choke cable remove from the handlebar already I just cannot see how to get at carb side.

Any recommendations on how to get at where its connected to the carbs?

I found this on the web does it sound right?

"remove the large air tubes to the right carb and move the left up out of the way. The bracket is on the left side, then feed the cable to the right between the carbs, a bit tricky. You'll see the choke lever on the back right of the carbs. insert in the cable holder. You have to bend the cable up to slip into the holder, the back down to lock it in. Before all of this, attach to the hand lever first."

ok when it says
"remove the large air tubes to the right carb and move the left up out of the way"

is it referring to the right carb when looking at the front or back of the bike?
