That is the correct caliper, your kit is for the front right which has the smaller pistons.
The kit for the front left is the same as the rear.

The 1200 does have 2 different front calipers. I rebuilt both mine. The right front caliper is operated by the rear brake pedal, and has the smaller pistons. The left front is operated by the lever, and has the larger pistons. I scrapped all that, and connected both front calipers to the front master cylinder. They work fine. The fittings are the same.
