Vstar 1100 Engine Weight

I need to remove my motor from an 05 1100. Does anyone have a ballpark estimate of how much the engine weighs?

I need to figure out if I can tackle the job solo or if I will have to call over a buddy for some extra muscle. Thanks

Solo you win all arguments, with a buddy you have someone too blame.

Depending on what you can lift....1 person can do it. However, I'd much rather have 2 people.....it's just a hell of a lot easier.
