Disconnect the battery for a little while and try again.

Is it possible to flood the bike with fuel by twisting the throttle while trying to start?

no not possible, if you have done anything to the bike since it ran last I would look back over what you touched, otherwise call up the dealer. They have had a few problems with faulty kill switches. My local dealer keeps them in stock because it is such a common problem. Good luck

Your description is confusing. You say it "cranks no problem" but then you say it "won't turn over". These are generally meant to be the same thing. If it cranks over then the motor is turning over.

From what I am interpreting the bike powers up fine but won't turn over/crank. Probably a battery issue. Check connections to the battery. Put a trickle charger on it overnight. Try it the next day. Just because a battery can power up the instrument panel doesn't mean it is strong enough to turn over the engine. A battery load tester would be of great use in this circumstance.
