rings

Just did a compression test on the '84. No compression but when I put some ATF in the cyclinder compression bumps up to 30. Thinking its the rings. Best place to get rings or if need be a piston?

Is there an approx distance for the dual sport? Thinking of doing it this year to try out the roads less traveled. Not sure if I should put the bigger tank on my EXC for it though.
