Front Disc Brake Rivet - K1200S (08)

I found a half moon shaped rivet on the garage floor this morning and I have established that it has fallen out of one of the front rotor fixings. I have had the front wheel off and established that there is no disc warping and the wheel is running true. I can safely say there has been no damage suffered so far. I have not experienced any change to the braking either in terms of feel or performance. I've checked the BMW parts fish and noticed they list a standard rivet repair kit and a retro rivet kit. Has anyone had experience with this issue or similar, and do you have any advice on best way to fix it, please? I could just replace the entire assembly but that seems like overkill as everything appears to be fine with the exception of half a rivet missing from one rotor fixing. All other fixings are normal and are functioning properly
