hi, you wont really run into slack chain issues if you shave the head,

the only thing is the cam timing WILL be slightly out , cause you bringing the head closer to crank, and the chain links wont allow to correct it unless u got adj gear.

You can have issues if to much is taken off the cylinder head.
