Spring seat is good. I fitted one of the 1930s/40s type ('Terry Lycette') sprung saddles to my Yamaha TDM. I had to build a sub-frame to carry it and it was set just a little higher than standard. I covered it in leather and no-one knew what was underneath. 11 springs between me and the bike was bliss.
The saddles come in different sizes and a larger one may be more appropriate, if you wished to go my route. Getting anchoring points for the rear springs was sorted by the sub-frame. The sub-frame also facilitates a covering. I used the bikes standard seat fixings to the bike.
Just do it! (I did: 2017 Rebel 500; 2014 MT-07)
