I just installed Dakota Digital gauges in my 2014 trike and I can set LO oil pressure warning. I know that the HD engine oil pressure can get very low on a hot day but does anyone know at what oil pressure does the factory low pressure light come on?

It is going to be tough to set 1 low pressure setting to cover all situations. At idle the stock pump can be down to 5
PSI and running down the road it can be anywhere between 25 and 35 PSI.
All I can think to do is see what your bike normally runs at and set the warning light at 5 PSI lower. It will show that you have low pressure at idle but it should be good while running the rest of the time.
Obviously I am not an expert. Maybe someone will have a better idea.

When mine is hot it is in the dirt, but light never comes on. Knock wood.

The stock oil pressure light is set to come on at 3psi so I would set the adjustable one to a point above that, maybe 4 - 5psi.
