My condolences on the loss of your friend; that's never an easy situation.
Take your title down to the dealer. They may be able to resurrect the key code from the VIN#. It's worth a shot. Once you have the key code, a locksmith can make a key. You may have to buy a blank at the dealer. My locksmith had Kawasaki blanks, but only had one in stock, so you can't count on all locksmiths to have the blanks.
Failing that, if you can get the cylinder out of the ignition there should be a code on the back of it. That's a tough job (they are designed to be hard to remove), and you'll have to take your title with you. The locksmith may refuse to work on an ignition lock that's out of the bike, so check first.
But, before all that, if there is any chance you can find the original paperwork on the bike, it would have the key code on it. I know, the chance of having the paper after 20 years is Slim and None, and Slim just left town...
