I wouldn't say that's an issue if it was only in third. It'll startle you, for sure, because it feels like you hit a brick wall - but as long as you didn't dump it into second gear straight off redline in fourth gear it's fine on occasion. It'll add to the wear, but it's not unsafe in an isolated incident.

If you want to be super safe, check your oil clarity (just drain a bit into a cup, and top off whatever you took out if it's pretty clear). If it's dirty, change the oil. I believe the Grom uses 10W-30.
