Daniel and I have tried a few solutions to the 'Pillion Seat' to improve its comfort for the passenger.

The first one is a universal widening cushion: https://www.saddlemen.com/comfy-sadd...earch=comfy%20

Next we used, with a solo seat from a Kawasaki Drifter, a ButtyBuddy directly on the rear fender: www.buttybuddy.com

Currently we're using a custom bracket that raises the ButtyBuddy up off of the fender. https://bikerbillsvulcan500rebuild.shutterfly.com/813

All of the above preclude using a passenger backrest. I also use a driver's backrest from Pro-Tac: www.protac.net

Hope this helps.
