I've used the rope method several times on small engines including 1100s. It's simple especially if you don't have a compressor. All it takes is some 1/4" nylon or poly line to feed into the cylinder with the piston at the bottom of the exhaust stroke. Then turn the crankshaft so the piston pushes upward against the rope which will hold the valves up. It doesn't take much rope with an interference engine as these are. One way to keep the piston against the rope is to have the bike in gear and pull the rear wheel to bring up the piston, then tie or weight down the brake pedal.
