Does that pressure plate have the hardened button inserts for the weighted arms ?
No it doesn't at this time, I've been running a lockup in my GS1100 for almost 20 years and love it, so it's about
time the B King get's one.

I'm planning to buy the pressure soon and would like to get the head ported and 1400 kit next year.

What does a lockup do
It allows you to use less static spring pressure with shims, lower rated springs pressure or 3 springs instead of 6 or a mix of all. Your trying to find that sweet spot in static spring pressures where you can dump the clutch at 8K rpms and not end up on your back or just sit there not going anywhere due to too much slippage on a street bike.

Once your out of the hole the clutch needs more clamping force or it's going to keep slipping down the track. That's where the arms come into play due to centrifugal force, the more weight you add to the arms the more pressure is added to the clutch pressure plate preventing slippage. Also adding more weight will bring the clutch in faster too.
