2013 icebear only starts with kick stand up and when kickstand released scooter stops.

This is very typical of motorcycles and scooters. On most scooters, which have automatic transmissions, it will require the kick stand be up to make sure you don't take off with it down which can cause injury. When you put the kick stand down, it shuts down the engine.

I have a 1982 Yamaha maxim 550. It's been running great but yesterday I noticed the kick stand didn't shut off the engine when the bike was still in gear. The neutral light turns on faint and

I would suspect two things ... thing one ... are you sure the '82 has a safety interlock switch? Thing two ... if it does have a switch, check it for proper operation.

Engine shuts off when put in gear. What's wrong?

Well, by chance have you put the motorcycle in gear while the side stand is down?

Newer motorcycles have a safety switch on the kick stand if it's down it'll kill the engine as soon as it's put in gear, put the stand up and all is well.

Kick stand safety shut down, once bike warms up it shuts off if kick stand is down

The bike is supposed to shut down if the kick stand is down. It is a safety feature designed to prevent starting out with the stand down, which can be very inconvenient on your first left turn. If you are saying the bike runs with the stand down when cold, then the switch must be in need of adjustment. Please rate my answer.
