I was also thinking to replace the rings at first, but then I asked myself why? I'm not loosing oil, no smoke, great compression, so unless something changes I'll not change anything!
However I had some rust in the steering bearings, not from the bearings but from the metal part of the seals. There was very little grease in there. I have also read a lot of stories of the missing grease in the linkage. I also think that you must change your fork oil and brake fluid from time to time. Some people change their brake fluid together with the oil change. Also it is important to check the nut holding the flywheel. I put two dots, one on the nut and one on the flywheel so I only open the cap and look for the dots alignment.
