Rear break light switch after installing rearsets

I just installed a set of Lightech rearsets and do not plan on using the rear break light. I noticed the switch for the rear break light needs to be depressed. Anyone know of a easy way to do this? It seems simple enough if I could find a closed nut to cap it off, however, efforts so far have not resulted in any luck.

Follow the wire up to the connector and unplug at the connector.
Thanks from jmparton

lardawge is right....just need to unplug the switch after following it upwards. It's on the right side under the black plastic cover, just have to remove the right side fairing.
Thanks from jmparton

I only noticed this out riding and used a small stone inside a tyre valve cap which screws onto the thread of the switch. Bit ghetto but works well.
