    I HAVE A 36 MINI Z. I'M PLANNING TO USE AMSOIL PURE SINTHECTIC 10w30 MOTOR OIL. IS THIS OKAY? OR IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER WHAT TYPE OF OIL.

    That is fine, I would wait until the engine is broken in before switching to synthetic.
    Any good quality oil can be used.

    The best Amsoil for an air cooled ZTR would be the Amsoil SAE 10W-40 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil (MCF)! Review data at "G2156 - Motorcycle Oils White Paper (1MB PDF)" on http://www.amsoil.com/storefront/mcf.aspx?zo=5931 !
