If rings were reverse torsional twist type then simply putting one ring on upside down could do it. With cylinder wear that slight I wouldn't guess top ridge would be that bad.
If guide now chewed seal may not help. I ALWAYS overlube guide, good seals prevent oil from getting to guide for a bit if doing what they are supposed to.
Look at exhaust too, there's some vacuum in there for a bit, four cylinders make enough in exhaust tract from pulsing to operate reeds for passive secondary air systems. And the exhausts will cook crap quality seals much faster. Some kits have some pretty crappy seals in them but I do not know specifically of your brand.
