12v DC motor precise stopping point?
Lets say I want to move a kick stand on a motorcycle by use of a motor. Hooked up to the battery and a button on the handle bar. Is there a way of controlling the motor so it will automatically shut off when the kick stand has swung down all the way? Also when it has swung back up?

Welcome to PF, Hoovy.
It's really simple. Just mount a couple of normally-closed microswitches on the frame, wired into both the extension and retraction circuits. When the stand goes down, it trips the switch wired into the extension lead. That still leaves the other side active. When it goes up, it trips the retraction shut-off.
