You will likely have to stabilize the crossbar if you want to attach to it and read the screen.
It is not that bad right now, I tested the location with some rubber bands, so I know this is where I would like it mounted...
but I will be adding some cross-braces as a winter project.....

I think I'd carry it in a pocket. Check it at gas stops.

Not the answer you were expecting but I'm using the Zumo 390 with Garmin TPMS and it works like a charm...
Not a good idea to carry it in your pocket: in case of a flat, having it in your pocket will not help, while having it on the dash can warn you several minutes before otherwise what could be a crash, IMO. Tubeless tires usually loose pressure slowly after being punctunred. It is better to know it before you take a curve with traffic coming the other way.

I was originally planning to go there but at twice the cost over the 660, even I had a difficult time trying to justify that,
the only noticeable difference being the TPMS, which I already have... just different.....

you can turn it upside down and consider how many motorcyclist were hurt because of a flat in the past 40 years... :-\

On a motorbike, I will consider any accessory that may make my ride safer. TPMS is part of it. But having it in your pocket is like having a helmet attached on the rear rack.

::026:: :D however Don my little story is that I've only ever owned one bike which had TPS as standard (GTR 1400, Connie) coincidentally that was the last bike I experienced a puncture with, so TPS was very useful on that occasion ::012::

Two P-clamps on the bar screwed to a small piece of plastic, covered with Velcro.

3M Dual Lock

My Pro-Oiler chain olier (for my Kawasaki Versys) came supplied with some to hold the Control Module to my dash.
It locks together and is very strong.
