So, I've been kind of curious. I notice just about every fretboard cleaning product I've bought for my guitars says it's not for use on a maple fretboard (Though I've used it anyway sometimes). Come to think of it, I don't think I've seen a fretboard cleaning product that says it's ok to use on maple. Which leads to the question, is there something out there specifically for use on maple? Or what else am I supposed to do? Even though I've used other stuff before anyway, I've used it infrequently since I don't want to damage the wood/neck. The guitar in question is my Jackson DK2M.

Any help is appreciated

Greg what did you send me??
A cleaner that is OK for the finish on your guitar should be OK for the maple fretboard. Take note I said cleaner though, not polish. Exposed wood cleaners (Ebony, Rosewood, etc) have oils in them to recondition the wood. This is not good for a finished fretboard because if some of it get under the finsh (by way of the fret slots) it can cause the finish to lift off the wood, ruining it.
Moving on.....
