Welcome the forum. Too many personal preferences and things to modify on the Bolt to suggest a specific next mod but a decent seat is something you won't regret. The stock Bolt seat might be perfectly acceptable if you don't ride far. I have a C-Spec with only the clip-ons angled back so the riding position is good for at least 3 hours. The standard Bolt puts most of your weight on your butt because of the forward pegs and higher bars so more padding is important. Better shocks would be nice but they're expensive. Also, many other "usual" modifications that are suggested require parts that are NLA. :(
