GSXR 600/750 K6 mirror

The right-hand side mirror has become loose. Once the mirror has been moved into position there is give of about an inch, forwards/backwards, which when going down a motorway or into headwind moves the mirror so that it is facing me (which is a scary image on its own), rather than giving a view of the road. I have looked on the web and noticed that this appears to be an issue that others have suffered and apparently it cannot be fixed as there is nothing to tighten on that part of the attachment. This appears to be relevant to both the 600 & 750 GSXR, of the K6 & K7 models.

I have also read that the latest models, K8 onwards, have a different mirror attachment that DOES include nuts/bolts that can be tightened up, which i can surmise points to Suzuki knowing that this is an issue with the earlier configuration.

The bike is still within warranty and i was wondering if anyone had any experience of this problem or similar. I'll be off to a local Suzuki dealer on Tuesday to see what they say but any info would be appreciated.

UPDATE: for anyone with similar issues in the future. Fixed without any questions as its in warranty but the dealer wasnt aware that the mirrors couldnt be adjusted. A new single mirror for the K6 would set you back £78 retail (but cheaper on ebay). Strangely the newer mirrors on the K8 are only £58, and are adjustable, but they didnt say whether this mirror was compatible with the K6 model. When i was at another local dealers i was talking about the mirror issue and, as they had in a 2nd hand 750, i was showing them where the problem was, and was able to move the right-hand mirror by about 1/4 inch, which is how my mirror problem first started to show. So i would say this is definitely a design issue with this type of mirror.
