Disconnect what joins it to the frame remove the bolts and lift the frame with the front end off the engine and drive train.
Sounds easy when I say it like that but I reckon its the best way
I also made a frame from angle and bolted it to the 4 bolts that hold the engine protection bars, make it wide at the base or it will fall over (dont ask).
I have heard of people pulling the engine off the gearbox while it's still in frame but that sounds like a nightmare getting it back in the frame.

No really , i am just in the middle of fixing the output shaft , and i do it like this , i strap the bike to my lift and then work my way forward remowing rearwheel driveshaft gearbox , tjen of with all electrical leads cables and hoses .during the hole operation i have the enginge jacked up .on a modified jack that has a bracket on it that screws on to the bottom of the engine.
After removing the two bolts on front of the engine i can slowly lower it and tip over .

If a job is worth doing, then do it properly. If not then get someone else to do it.
