There's a reset button on the end of the filterminder sensor that's in the side of the airbox. Just push it in, although it's a little firm sometimes. It also will tell you percent of "use" your filter has left.

I don't believe unhooking the batteries will reset the filterminder although it will temporarily clear the light and/or codes present. Resetting the filterminder is MUCH easier than taking the battery cables loose since it takes less than a second to do.
