They put brackets on tons of seats. If you aren't sure use excessive amounts of jb weld, and large brackets with multiple attachment points. That's what I was going to suggest, but my approach is always brutish.

its the screwing mounting points to the underside of the seat that is potentially full of risk...i am hoping i don't have to go down that route.

Not sure why you say that. Lots of people do it. If you are concerned drill a hole the size of your bolt head, and make a slot the size of the shaft, and put the bolts in and slot them down, and then jb weld up the hole. Captive bolts.

If you need to add fasteners to the pan, look into riv-nuts or rivet-nuts. You drill a hole, insert the riv-nut, then collapse it like a rivet.

Easy-peasy.

I like the idea of that...again, the seat unit is plastic so would rivnuts still work?

Threaded inserts in plastic is common practice. Nutserts moreso than rivnuts but both will work. However for rivnuts you'll need a special install tool with thread size-specific attachments for each thread size you want to use. Also I hate them.

I'd use these for your circumstance:

Hypermotard 1100S the weight-shavening.
Bandit 1200 cafe/fighter that will never get finished at this rate.
Turbo Busa v2 2017 Buildoff.
Turbo Busa V1.2 2016 Buildoff.
Turbo Busa v1.1
919 Hornet build'n'flip, lotsa electrical diagnostic info in there.

Or you could strip the seat and fit bolts through the base, secured with a nut and lockwasher, to give you studs on the underside of the seat. If you going to trip the shape of the front of the seat then you'll have to be taking off the vinyl covering anyway...
