WD-40 should be fine. It is designed for this purpose.

I don't know much about Ball Diff. But, after the WD-40, should you reapply whatever Diff Fluid, Diff gel, Diff grease or whatever that is?

Default Ball Diff cleaning methods

Motor spray works great. You don't want the residue that WD-40 will leave. It is not compatable with the Silicone diff grease.

The best way is to disassemble, clean with Motor spray and reluble with the proper greases. Do this on a clean WHITE towel or rag so you dont loose the balls. I put mine in a White coffie cup for cleaning then dump them onto a White towel to wipe off.

Default WHAT GREASE!!???

Associated diff grease is supposed to be the best. Silicone (clear/white) for the diff balls and (black) for the thrust bearings/balls. Availible at your LHS.
