On a 660 with some motor work done, I'd suggest the TM in a 45mm size.

Haven't seen dual tm's either, thought there was a size/packaging issue fitting them between the frame rails but I don't know for sure. Lectrons are the only other dual carbs I've seen squeezed into the 660 (aside from the stock mikuni bsr and the keihin fcr). If you can get your hands on a set to do a test fit and they work then I wouldn't discourage you from trying it. The TM is a good carb.

I think a problem is the cable routing.

It's a problem with the FCR's as well, if the intake isn't short enough or on the wrong angle it'll put the cable connection right into the bottom right back corner of the tank. Some have reshaped the tank, others just leave the rear bolt out, others use one of the standard adapter intakes and don't have a problem.

I'm not familiar with where the connection takes place on a pair of TMs but I would imagine you could work something out.
