Mirror Thread Plug Ideas?

I replaced my mirrors with a CRG bar end mirror. Now I have two little bird baths on my handlebars everytime it rains. Any Ideas for something black and threaded the right size that would look relatively stock?
I think your average stainless steel bolt screwed in there would look worse.

Luck favors the prepared.

I think something like this https://sugru.com/buy/pitch-black-3-pack
would look better filling the hole than a stainless bolt.
I think it could be removed (with some effort) if so desired to put more traditional mirrors back on.

I doubt you would ever get that out.

I was thinking of something like these.

I know they are to big, but I have seen smaller. I dont know the size of the mirrors holes though.

I Googled "plastic plug"

One of the mirror 'perches' is a bass-ackwards thread, isn't it?

Bolt that fits - paint to match - install.

Some black silicone OVER a small piece of wood, so that when you WANT to remove it, just screw a small screw into the wood and pull out the "plug".

Go to a Kawi dealer. The mirror holes on a Brute Force 650 or 750 ATV have plugs in them that are the same size. There was a few advantages to working at a dealership for a couple of years. They can look up the part number or you can get it off the Kawi website.
