No I don't have any problems, just always have been pondering on what different engine enviroments cause these 2 different burns. I'm currently sledless anyways.... until my new one comes in this fall :)

The best way to prevent detonation is to check your spark plugs often. If the spark tips don't look good, then there's likely a problem. Plugs are the easiest way to see if your sled is running ragged. I'm sure you all know what a fouled plug and a lean plug look like, if not you might have more problems than a detonated engine.

A lean condition and detonation are not the same thing. A lean condition can cause detonation which will hole a piston.
