On my bike rotating trunk lock to the right/clockwise unlocks allowing the levers to function; i.e. permits opening the trunk & side panels using the levers. Rotating the key left/counter clockwise locks 'em, disabling the lever function. You need to use the levers for opening, and just slam the lids closed to close. Hope this helps.

Try pushing down on the trunk when you turn the key left. It might be binding. For those that are unfamiliar, on the 1500's, when the trunk lock is in the lock position, you should be able to turn the lock slightly to the left and it should release the trunk lid only. It won't unlock the saddlebags and technically, the trunk is also still locked but the lid can be released. Just remember to not put keys in the trunk because if the lid closes, your keys will be locked in the trunk....

Mine did that for awhile several years ago. I adjusted the latches catches (kinda "D" shaped metal dealies the latches grab) until it closed just a little looser, but still sealed well.
