Yes it is fine to run the milled slant head with a stock head gasket and as long as the slant head has not been milled beyond the height of the raised sealing ring that the heads have, it is a good idea to leave the spark plug out and roll the bike forward or backwards with clutch engaged so the engine will spin over just to make sure the piston doesn't contact the head.
I have shaved the slant heads down until all of the sealing ridge ring is removed and as long as the head gasket is a stock thickness of 0.018+ I have never had the piston contact the head.
