I've had my l2201dt for several years now and I figured it was different because of the Japanese writing on it. But I didn't know my local kubota dealer was gonna be a dick and not help with parts. So could someone please help me or tell me what american version kubota is same as mine ? And what is a good source for parts? I would like to get a service manual also. Thanx

As near as i can tell from a google search it appears the north american equivalent is the l245.

Go to Kubota's web site and read all about the greys.
Then you might understand why the dealer is being a pain, he has to, or he losses his dealership.
You will have a really hard time finding a service manual for the L2201, and while it is close to the L245 it's not the same, parts will vary.

What parts are you needing?

I need a right side outer tie rod end. I broke muffler and manifold . I just put manifold and pipe from L245 on and it fit. I went on ebay and was able to look at listing and everyone said no it won't fit so I just took a chance and bought it. I'm being told also that the tie rod won't fit. I've read about the grey market tractors. It's still made by kubato so they should sell parts for it . I went to my local parts store and the manager was kind enough to let me open ever tie rod end box he had to see if something would adapt. No luck so now I need help from someone on here

for the tie rod.... find a guy who has built his own rockcrawler or mud truck. They might set you up something for beer and a steak. or will point you to someone who might. A good ol' hiem joint should do you fine. https://www.4wheelparts.com/Fabrication-Tools/Heim-Joints.aspx?t_c=86&t_s=528&t_pt=101459

or modify the steering knuckle if needed to fit another off the shelf more common tie rod end fabricated to fit the tail of your tie rod.

What do you want to know?
And it's Kubota, not kubato. ;)
