Yes, they are 70mm.  The stock flat ones are rather boring.  I usually put "3-D" roundels on my Ks.

The BMW 3-D ones are part 51142328269 but those are rather spendy.

The factory flat ones for K tanks are 46637686746 and still not too cheap.

Plenty of knock-offs on ebay for less though.  Just search for "70mm bmw"

Yes, K bike tank badges are 70mm.  BMW gets stupid money for them.

Found these on ePrey, they're half of what the dealer gets:

Wipe the tank with rubbing alcohol on a clean rag before you stick them on.

Here's what the 3-D ones look like. The chrome rim around the edge is raised and the roundel is slightly convex.
