Worry less about the potential damage to the bike (minimal) and more about going over the bars or laying it down.

Unless you drop each gear down one at a time as you decelerate, you'll likely lose track of what gear you're in. In that case, let the clutch out just enough to see what it's doing to your rpms and then shift as needed.

Dumping the clutch with the tranny two gears too low equals locking the rear wheel and as such, could hurt you.
