2005 VStar Silverado LED Front Running/Signal Bulbs

I'm the sort of person that wants to be seen by oncoming traffic. I purchased some of these "Switchback" bulbs from superbrightleds.com. Of course I found out that someone at Yamaha decided to use a non-standard bulb with 3 nubs instead of the 2 on the standard 1157 bulb. I found in the KB that you can just file down one of the nubs on the new bulb and the 1157 will work. I am now all LED up front. The main headlight is a cheapo Amazon $45 LED by Sunpie. I installed 2 driving/passing lights purchased at Wal-mart on the signal stems and put LEDs in them ($29 total) and now these LED switchback bulbs in the turn signals. The Video starts on low beam then I switched on the high beam. Notice the Wal-mart lights go out in high beam.
Sorry for the bad video. The camera was on a bad stand. It was my 1st.
