With prolonged use you can do damage to the starter. That said, jumping a 6-volt system from a 12 has probably been successfully done hundreds of thousands of times. To minimize that potential for damage, only keep the jumper cables connected for the shortest possible time and in any case for no longer than a half-minute or so. Attempt to start immediately after the cables are connected and disconnect immediately after it starts.
