Motorcycle Hall of Fame – Davy Morgan – DM71 Road Racing

He has won races on the three world famous international road race circuits, 2004 on the TT Mountain Circuit he won the Senior Manx Grand Prix, 2005 the 250cc Race at the North West 200 and 2012 victory in the 250cc Race at the world’s fastest road race, the Ulster Grand Prix at Dundrod.

As a privateer at the Isle of Man TT he has a fastest lap at over 125mph, which only a very select list of riders in the world have ever achieved. On top of his international success he has recorded a collection of race wins, plenty of podiums and numerous top ten finishes across Ireland, Isle of Man and UK.


Davy has a mixture of GPFAX brake pads (front) and organic brake pads on the rear of his Honda 250cc GP, Yamaha R6 Supersport and Kawasaki ZX10 Superstock bikes.

GPFAX Sintered Road Race Brake Pads

EBC GPFAX Sintered Road Race Brake Pads
The GPFAX Formula Sintered Race pads are a direct replacement of the GPFA series. This formula is even higher in friction and created specifically to be used only on asphalt surfaces such as those found in race track conditions. Because of the super performance that they provide, these brake pads are a growing favourite choice of superbike racers.

Another benefit of the GPFAX sintered material is that it now has even better heat cycling ability allowing the brake pads to be raced, cooled, then raced again.

EBC Brakes Organic Motorcycle Brake Pads

EBC Organic Motorcycle Brake Pads
EBC Organic motorcycle brake pads are Europe’s first and only ECE R90 approved brake pad. Manufactured at EFI in Bristol, these brake pads perform as well as any sintered pads, as proved by R90 compliance. This ‘aramid’ series has now been renamed Non-Asbestos Organic or NAO and is created from aramid fibre in conjunction with other high tech modern fibres. If you want a value for money all round brake pad replacement then the NAO series is the perfect choice for all levels of motorcycle and is very popular with many riders who prefer the “feel” of organic pads.
