If you are sequencing a small number of plasmid-derived inserts, then you are likely to not need the full number of reads in a lane. An alternative to creating a custom primer is to just spike your library into a control lane of PhiX on a HiSeq, or mix in a higher-complexity library (usually someone has something they want a little more sequence for) on a MiSeq. It seems like the recent software changes have made the MiSeq less sensitive to complexity reductions anyway.
