I would not worry about it. If you must, then split your cases and inspect # 3 shift fork - mine was worn to half the original thickness- and replace the shift fork. Also inspect/ replace gearset for third gear set and neighboring gear if dogs show damage. I was impressed with the clean metalwork of the Suzuki engine. It is a quality machine.
