How long can I overvoltage my infinium 54855A

The max voltage on the inputs to the 54855A Infinium scope is +/- 5V (100mA.) Since obviously nothings arcing at 5V I assume it's a matter of too much current overheating and killing the input amplifier. How does this limit vary with pulse width. I have a pulse width of about 15nsec from a current probe & I'm worried about transients in the tens of volts killing our $65,000 scope.
Thanks
