I haven't seen any but I remember seeing the OEM one on the Yamaha FJR1300 that my buddy had, it was electric and keyed to the ignition, bike had to be on or ACC for it to open. very cool feature.

I bet if somebody made a kit like that for RG it would be popular.

It was a bit of a pain getting them installed, but once done I liked them. I am going to get them for my 15, but have not gotten to that part of the list just yet.

Gotta look at those locks. Broke a LH door spring at SW4, door will suck open at 80 or if a truck goes by. Always thought they should be lockable anyway

You can purchase cheaper cam locks if you don't mind having a second key.
I did this with some cam locks I purchased off the net for less than $20.
If you search "Removing Glove Box Lids" you can probably find the thread.
Pretty easy mod. The eglides are nice cuz you can have them keyed to your HD key but I'm a cheap ass and don't mind having a second key so I improvised.

Yea... Take your time and measure twice! I was going to make my own but the keyed to my keys option finally won me over to eglide goodies. I had to fiddle with the tabs that you screw into the fairing side of the glovebox to get them to latch. I think I had the tolerances too tight. They work very well if installed correctly. I keep an iPod in one of the boxes so I felt the locks were a good thing. Cheap insurance.

I have them--will post pics later--they were easy to install and look clean. Double-check your measurements, and you'll have no problem.
