I know I'm late to the party, but this^^^ is the clearest and most on-point response.
The Puch Maxi is the the Honda Civic of mopeds. Everyone has them, everyone has 4 of them. There are literally dozens if not hundreds of threads about the same bike with the same question. They all have various setups but with the sheer volume of posts, and the limited number of iterations of bolt-on combinations, your bike is not that unique that someone hasn't already done exactly that. Four times. I guess I'm saying I don't buy the idea that you are well-researched.
Anyone with a strong educational background will know about skimming and scanning. It's a reading strategy where you quickly look over information to find what you are looking for. In other words, just skip the stuff you don't need. (Ignore the troll posts.)
Lastly, you don't need to announce your competence. I've found that if you ask a question intelligently, you'll get an intelligent answer. Trolls may always be with us, but generally they feed on the weak of mind and the lazy. I'm still a relative newcomer, but even in my short time I've seen thread after thread with the same inane questions. Basic beginner questions that are already answered ad nauseum. Don't believe me? Just look for the number of "how much is my bike worth" threads and you'll get an idea. (edited)
