You dont want to guess at it.

How much oil was it really going through? Were you measuring what came out at oil change or checking oil level through the window?Are you 100% sure the leakdown test was done right? People sometimes can mess that up if they dont do it all the time.
From here the ring gaps look nice and tight,bore looks perfect. Replacing a (probably) good piston/rings may be just tossing money away. Internet hype may say you need an aftermarket piston,many get along for a very long time on OEM parts,some even finish the Dakar race on them.
Some bikes around at times
