Kohler Shower handle not coming off

Hello,

I am trying to replace shower cartridge but I am unable to take off the Kohler shower handle. There are two long screws in the back trim plate, but nothing on the handle itself. I took the screws out and plate lifts off the wall. it spins freely but the handle itself is stuck.
Am I able to just pull this handle off? I dont see a set screw anywhere. When I pull on the handle, it sounds like I'm pulling on the pipes.

Any suggestions?

Appreciate the help!

There is usually a set screw on the underside of the handle that takes a 3/32" Allen wrench to loosen it. It is on the bottom of the handle right in front of that bottom screw you removed. Visible in your first photo.
