On GPS speed was about 276 -ish and yes all speedos have error , so we always get more speed on speedo than the real one I guess depend on the tires pressure, rider weight etc.So what was the speed, bit hard to see, looked like 298kmh? With 17/44 sprockets and 7% speedo error that is ~277kmh
I had my 98 up to 287kmh years ago (267kmh actual), had a little left but the road had some undulations so the front was getting light so was judicious to back off
@TheDuck : Questions:Here are the datalogged figures taken by MCN taken at Bruntingthorpe aerodrome in Sept 05 for an Fi (174.72 = 279.55kph)

Yes metres. No the information has not as far as I know ever been released. I acquired it from their data logging tester after they had tested my supercharged Bird.Speed is in mph. Is it safe to assume that distance is in meters? - a non-imperial unit of measure...
Is the source material made by MCN available somewhere?
