New packing will stop it for one summer. No, oil out the back doesn't mean you need new rings.

What mix raio you running ? 32 to 1 is your best choice
Carb adjustment done correctly [mixture screw]?
Good quality fuel 94 octane or better.
New packing will help.
A well tuned bike will have NO oil dripping out the silencer.

read the last couple pages of this it will help with how to adjust the mixture screw and carb set up etc .
good luck
