I can't answer this with much certainty... but I have heard people say that it sounds like a rattling noise on acceleration.
I agree w this. I've heard it from the side of a track on a 95 cr 125 a while back, when it happend my friend said it wouldn't excelerate as fast when it hapened, but I think that was a serious case. It was really obviousthough.
When it's only an occasional knock it sounds like there is a little gremlin in your cylinder hitting it w a hammer if it's continuos like my friends the gremlin was hitting it really fast

When my bike was pinging it sounded like a metallic ring that only happened at a certain RPM. Theres the regular ping then kinda sputtering down then another ping when youre at idle but this is constant and it definitely has a sound all its own. Almost like glass scraping against metal.
This is a good description. I think it also kinda sounds like a spoon stuck in the garbage disposal - Very noticable and very different than regular motor noises. Mine was detonating at 1/8 throttle under light load and good under more throttle. Working on clip position to fix it.

You will know what detonation sounds like.
Otherwise, think of a loose nut banging around inside your cylinder when running under load. A metallic rattling sound that gets worse the harder the engine is working.
If your engine is stock, you don't need race gas. Premium pump gas and a quality premix will do just fine.
You would only need race gas if your engine is seriously built up. Even then, I would highly recommend you speak with the engine builder to hear what they recommend.

It sounds like a bucket of silver dollars getting vacuumed out of your wallet.
HA! So Very True in So Many Ways!!

Like too many empty beer bottles on the floor of your car rattling when you go over bumps. "Clink clinkle clink"
