front shock oil

Does heavier oil slow down the action on stock Tomos front forks?

If it is an older Tomos there is nothing but a spring and a sparing amount of grease in the forks. Check drawings at Moped Junkyard.

If thats the case, then maybe I'll make preload spacers to tighten up the spring

Lot of people acquire late model hydraulic forks from Tomos (EBR) or buy and sell on MA. Also Suzuki K10 forks can be adapted. Spacers will work but you limit your travel.
