Default Rear tire seems too slip in acceleration?

I haven't been riding long so I'm still new to this and I can't figure out why my rear tire seems to slip while accelerating almost as If the chains slips for a split second

New rear tire? What size sprockets? Chain properly tensioned and lubed? Inspect your chain and sprocket for and look for abnormalities.

Like I said I'm a new rider the tire isn't new and the problem just started a week ago been riding for a month with no issues I can assume I need to lubricate the chain, what should I use?

Everyone has their own way. There are umpteen different lubes/pastes you can use. I'd recommend cleaning with either kerosene or WD40 and a rag, then using whatever lube you want on your chain. I use Castrol, but others use belray, pj1, motul, honda... I'm not going to list them all, but you get the point. I'd stay away from those pastes, they just collect crap and can actually decrease chain life.

You have to clean and lube often. Every 500 miles or so. Best to do it after a ride when the chain is warm.

Buddy - the chain should NOT come off under any circumstances during normal riding. Guys have been killed by a neglected chain coming off/breaking and locking up the rear wheel on them. PLEASE make sure the chain and sprockets get inspected and tensioned properly. Download the service manual here or take it to a shop.

There should be no way you can either put on or take off your chain just by using your hands. If you can, you have a very serious safety issue. Park your bike until it gets sorted out.

CorruptFile and hamlin6 are absolutely 100% correct. Your bike is benched till you have this corrected. This is serious enough that it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say your next post will be "I crashed"... if you're alive to post.

DO NOT RIDE THAT BIKE 1 MORE INCH

These guys are right, its not worth it! I just had chain and sprockets replaced myself because the chain wore out (overstretched, it was a cheap one PO used) and I let it dig into my sprockets some since I planned on replacing them. As soon as I felt what your describing, I parked it until they were replaced!
