Please, which bulbs did you use? An led meant for dc flashlight, or steady dc automotive use is going to fry very quickly off of a moped motor. Your bike's circuit is delivering AC at anything from 2vac to 20vac or more depending on RPM. And it's ragged, peaky voltage on top of that, not the steady dc you'd expect from a battery.

I'd be surprised if you fried "landscaping" bulbs of the type I've recommended. Unlike automotive bulbs they are designed to accept AC in a wide range of voltages.(edited)
