What do you mean? You just shifted too late and hit the rev limiter? Thats no problem. If you mis shifted and over revved the engine thats when things go bad.

LIke others have said, it does happen to the best of us, yeah it freaked me out the first time as well, you are fine, thats why its there, just as long as you dont ride on the rev limiter, thats when things can go wrong
