Probably the best way to accomplish it would be to leave all of the stock mechanism in place, so it would still work, and find a way to add a remote control mechanism to activate it as an alternative.
The lock mechanism would remain the same. One end a new cable would be connected to the lock mechanism, the same as the original cable. The other end of the new cable would terminate at the new Keyed Lock mechanism, which could be located on the left side or the right side. Locating the keyed lock on the right side would be easiest, as a shorter straighter cable could be used. However, mounting the keyed lock on the left side may be more convenient, since the rider usually mounts/dismounts on the right side. But mounting on the left side will require the cable to basically curve in a U shape and be longer, but may not be a problem. The Honda Silver Wings Trunk Key Lock is on the left side, and they work very well.

The air filter area left of the glove box is a good place to hide keys if you don't lock the glove box. Even if you do, the cover panel can be popped out with a knife blade.

Common sense, the least common of the senses.

I hide a key and 5 dollars in a baggie inside the passenger backrest frame. The pad pops out with no tools.

Please don't keep anything valuable under the seat of your bike. That thing is way too easy for a crook to pop open.
I keep a few things under my seat such as Several Hats, bungee cords, rags, flashlight, tire gauge, tire plugs, ride-on, air compressor, safety vest, flannel shirts, face shields, insect repellant, WD-40, Lots of Tools, Flask, Safety Reflector Triangle, Folding Cane, First Aid Kit, Lighted Traffic Director Light, Bottle of Motor Oil, Bottle of Antifreeze, Rope, Dog Leash, Tape Measure, Duct Tape, Tie Wraps large and small, some LEO stuff and a bunch of other stuff that I can't remember right now. No guns or ammo or knives (I carry all that). Nothing that can't be easily replaced.

No way around it. I am not taking the stuff off and on every time I ride it. It is home to:

- jumper cables
- battery jump start device
- tire repair kit including compressor
- flashlight
- bungies
- extra gloves
- fleece pants
- etc.

Not sure it would ever occur to me to store guns, ammo or knives there.
