Godier Genoud were the French importers for Kawasaki for many years. They also fielded SEVERAL other bikes in the Bol D'Or (Where my OTHER bike gets its name)

For those who WEREN'T a factory trained Kawasaki mechanic when the earth cooled (or set up their thirty year old bike out of the BOX) those calipers, being positioned AHEAD of the fork leg is CORRECT.

RC, welcome to the forum and your English is alright. Don't worry about it.

I was thinking endurance bike when I saw that one. Your comments about the Bol D'Or verify that. The basic bike wasn't legal for the GP classes and superbike didn't exist over seas yet. Had to run some other sort of racing.

I am kind of surprised they didn't swap the legs to get the calpers behind the fork leg, slightly lowering the mass and getting it more on line with the steering axis. That was a common practice back around 1978 or so. Maybe it was for pad access and such that might be needed in endurance racing.
