Went for ride on Sunday morning and for some reason my bike began only starting while in neutral. I have always been able to start while in gear with the clutch pulled....any ideas?

Try the cheap and easy first--shoot some contact cleaner in it. That's a good thing to do occasionally to all exposed switches.

Well gents, I have done a thorough inspection of the clutch safety switch and have determined that it has not failed...it came unplugged! Lol!

Glad you got it and the price was right too.

Do what I do and always start the bike in neutral.
Unless Im parked sloping back on a steep hill like I was last night.
Even then I clicked it up into neutral to fire it up.
Barnett clutch and forged pistons only add to the reasons to start in neutral.
Its easier on the bike.
Plus I spent a lifetime on kickstart bikes.
Try starting them in gear with the clutch pulled in.

Not the answer you were looking for i suppose, but you did ask.
