Dinotte 600 mounting

I did a quick search, but didn't come up with anything that really answered my question. Has anyone mounted a Dinotte 600L on flat top/wing drop bars? There's not quite enough space on my K-wings in between the stem and the flat top section of the bar to fit the mount. The mount supplied by Dinotte only fits the round section of the bars, not the flat top. I know that I could probably put the bars a little off center, but I'd rather not do that. Anyone have any suggestions?

Minoura makes an add on bar called the "Space Grip", I have one on my bike with two Cateye EL530s. It was a little of a pain to install, but it gave the needed real estate for the Cateyes.

I've used the 600L since last fall, with it mounted to my helmet (using the supplied mounting bracket/straps).

I really like being able to aim that Bad Boy Blinder at cars coming in from side streets, and approaching cars in left turn lanes. It gets instant attention, whether it's in flash or steady state mode.

Well, I also have a Fenix light for my helmet. I haven't mounted either yet, and since the days are getting longer now I likely won't need them for a little while. But, I would like to be able to use them sooner rather than later. I might want to get out and ride at night some this spring/summer, so I think I'm going to go ahead and get the FSA add on. Anyone used this specifically for a Dinotte light? Any issues with mounting or sturdiness?
