On CB1100F.net there is an excellent method posted for taking the engine out of the frame. I’ve used it once and it was a charm, engine in and out very easy.
Basically, as mentioned earlier, remove sump and oil pickup (alternatively leave them in situ and remove cams), then take two long 2 x 4s, strap one underneath the carb manifold and another underneath the exhaust manifold bolts. Cinch very tightly. One guy on either end (make 2 x 4s long wnough to pass engine all the way through the frame. Third person tales over from the person on the side the engine is coming from. no scratches and easy as pie.
