Hi Hotwing, it sounds like the mechnisim is jamming, you need to remove the plastic cover on the inside of the trunk and you will then see whats jamming it. Check the alignment of the locking tabs on the trunk lid.
Do you have problems with opening the lh saddlebag, if so it probably means you have the old latch mechanism. These should have been replaced under warranty
