The bike in your avatar looks like it has been modified. Does it still have the original air box or does it have pod filters? In stock form the carbs are held in place by both the manifolds and the air box.

Yes it has pods, though I’m very confident the intakes manifolds are for the CX. When I push one side in the other side pops right out. I’m pretty new to these bikes but I can still tell they are not on the proper angle to accept the carbs

It sounds like you have the right intakes but are probably the cheap aftermarket ones. There have been many reports of those being just slightly the wrong angle to work. If you had the wrong intakes you wouldn’t come close to fitting the carbs.
