Default Cylinders and static compression checked. Advise?

Ok I did a static compression test last night and got 170 psi per cylinder (engine cold).
Seems a bit low doesn't it. Before the teardown and piston replacement I had about 180 psi.
I have about 1200 km. on the top end. I did a check at about 800 km and I got 180 psi.. (cold engine).
Now I took my telescopic camera into the combustion chamber and the front cylinder looks pretty clean still. The rear has me concerned. See pictures

Front cylinder first picture
