Diagram from the B&M website should clear this up. The answer to whether it can hurt your transmission or not? Yes and no. You can hurt your transmission with a normal shifter by using too much force, trying to shift to fast (sychros can't engage quickly enough, bear in mind that we have constant-mesh transmissions, you are not moving gears around, just which one is connected to the drive shaft), or not using the clutch correctly. A shorter level and ratio means if you are not precise, you have a higher chance of the above problems. Think of it this way, if you grab your shift level 35 mm below the top of the knob , and shift holding it there, are you gonna hurt anything. no.

Edit: "Modified" in this diagram would be a STS for us
