I can vouch for how good the Triumph Adjustable High Screen is for smaller riders. I'm 5'8" with 30" inseam and this screen works great for me.

Do the gel seats have a different shape or profile than the stock seat? What about height?

While the stock seat isn't a huge issue for me, there is definitely room for improvement.
