Detonation really sounds like marbles in the top end.
As for sprockets, that is completely up to you. Do you think gearing is too high or too low? Are you riding your bike on the road frequently? Is your bike completely stock or modified? BTW, the stock gearing (14/50) is actually pretty good for everything!

The countershaft sprocket is the same as the old TT/XT 500 Yamahas so they are plentiful and cheap. The rear sprocket also fits a bunch of Yamahas but I have forgotten the exact interchange. I like the steel Sunstar or JT sprockets best for longevity. The stock chain is unbeatable albeit expensive. I'll probably buy a Moose or another cheapie with a high tensile strength rating though.
