Coming from a CB750 Nighthawk, I was limited as to my seat options. There were no aftermarket alternatives.
At first, I tried a gel pad. Then went to foam tiles underneath and sponges to spread out the pressure points. I even had the seat professionally reworked ($300) with little improvement. Ended up with a reworked seat, the listed above and a sheep skin cover.
Rode a lot of uncomfortable miles with this set up.
Rain was dealt with by flipping the sheep skin over and under the pillion gear.
I would use anything you can imagine. An old bathroom carpet or whatever you can borrow from other riders and see what works for you.
Do look into handlebar risers as they might change you lower body dynamic.
Hope this helps.
