I wouldn't worry about it just don't let it grind if u can help it and that'll save the gears in the tranny lol and just get better at shifting start out shifting slow before shifting faster so the 2-20 becomes 20-20

Yes it can.
Over revving the engine during missed shifts can cause engine damage.
Grinding the gears together produces minute metal particles which get spread throughout your transmission.


Get a good aftermarket shifter like the Pro 5.0 that is designed to prevent over travel of the shifter forks which will bend them and they are designed to help prevent missed third gear shifts.

Probably no damage if its only happened a few times. But I would suggest the pro 5.0 like trojan mentioned. It will help hitting the 3rd gear. It's also possible you may need an adjustment on your clutch.

Steeds tri ax is a great shifter but I fell in love with the MGW shifter. I've shifted both and IMO MGW is a better shifter. Tighter smoother guarantee not to ever miss 3rd again and life time warrantee on all parts of shifter. Plus you can rotate the handle 360 degrees to suit you better
