speedometer face warp?

The needle on my TX750's speedo (Nippon Seiko) had been sticking lately and I suspected it need lubrication. When I pulled the unit from the bike I noticed the faceplate had warped so that it basically looks like a wavy washer under the glass. The needle would stick on one of the up waves, around the 40-60 mph range. Is there any cure? (tried pics but couldn't get any that showed the condition clearly).

I recently changed the location I park it in the garage, and the gauges are in the afternoon sun coming through a window. Could solar heat cause this warpage?
