I don't believe the wide open trick works on FI'd bikes. On carb'd bikes that's what you do. I believe you're supposed to just let it sit when flooded. Question though, have you tried bump starting the bike while having someone push you? Going down a hill is great. If trying to start it using the starter, don't open the throttle at all.
If you're looking at spark plugs then you need to look at the insulator to see if it's fouled, not the electrode. If the electrode is wet, then yeah, you've probably flooded it.
Another trick to use is to spray some starter fluid in your air filter. If there's any spark at all, it will fire!
