Chain slips

Hi guys I have an issue with my chain slipping under hard acceleration. I recently changed my front and rear sprocket and chain. I’m noticing metal shavings in the front sprocket cover and rear rim. Could I have installed the wrong size chain? Is it the clutch? Any insight is much appreciated.

Is it adjusted correctly? Too much slack?

Chain slipping? Chain hopping teeth is no bueno. If that chain hops off the sprocket, you are going to have a bad day.

Chains don't slip. Something is seriously wrong. You need to take it to someone who knows what they're doing.

PS: if you're going to ask the internet to diagnose your bike at least include a picture.

Sounds as though you have a different problem. Are you running the correct chain? Did you change the chain when you changed the sprockets? Where did you get the chain? I ask that because there are places that sell chain on ebay and amazon and those places that say they are for instance DID or other name brand, but they are not.
