We are talking about corner entry here, so at what part between braking point and apex you can induce a slide by closing the throttle... when you are allready heavy on the front brake, throttle CLOSED and engine braking.
And what is the reason to slide the front, to slow down, to get wider line... Better technicues for both of those than sliding the front.
we are talking corner entry on a motogp bike.I am responding to your post where you imply that they dont or should not slide.They are on the limit of traction,and they are sliding,ie there is some slippage between tyre and track
