Solo Seat, no pillion

Is anyone running a truly solo seat without the passenger pillion, if so what do you do with the hole for the thumb screw in the middle of the rear fender. Leave the hole, Just let the thumb screw in place in the middle of the fender?

Pictures please

Thanks

There are several plugs that you can get at a place like Home Depot if you want a chrome type. There's also a nice little plug with a bar and shield on it that you can get at the link below for five bucks.

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

I am using a Harley Davidson Signature Solo with built in backrest. I then have a Mustang Fender Bib the takes care of the space where the pillion lived and the bolt/screw holds the bib down. My bike is at the dealer or I'd take a photo.

HD makes a trim cap screw that I’m using. The parts guys were having a hard time remembering the part number and one of the guys told the guy that was helping me to look at the parts on a 2000 Heritage Springer. That worked. They found it that way and we ordered it with the seat. Looks fine

The chrome plug is attached to the underside of the solo seat from the factory. When you take the passenger pillion off, remove the solo and look on the bottom side. The little chrome piece is there. Remove it and stick it in the hole...I can attach pics if needed.

My mistake, I went out and checked. The chrome thing is attached to the bottom of the passenger pillion.
