clutching it up

Ok so my bike is being very stubborn. I have no problems wut so ever powering it up, but every time i go to clutch it up my chain slipps. First thing i did was check the sprocket and chain and turns out they were really worn down so i replaced them. Yet my chain is still slipping any suggestions on whats going on?

What bike, and how is the chain slipping? Jumping teeth?

How old is the chain/sprockets? A properly adjusted, good condition chain won't jump. When changing, change the whole set.

Not sure how many teeth would be best for your application and use, but you can get an idea on the effects of different sprockets at:
