Those LEDs probably won't work. A colored lens filters out other colors and lets its color pass through. If the white LED has no yellow light in its spectrum, there is no yellow to get through your lens. A halogen or normal incandescent has this yellow light and therefore passes through.
If there is an amber or yellow LED with very high power, that might work. Or the MR11 in 12 volt, wide flood version, your choice, 10 watt or 20 watt (is the 20 too hot?), grafted on to an 1156 base. I lined the lamp housing with aluminum foil and use a halogen 3497 bulb. Some people get a strip of the red & white reflective tape you see on truck trailers, DOT C2 spec, and line the housing with the white reflective tape. The red tape goes good on the back sides of luggage or a strip along the swingarm.
