If there's no corrosion on the thermostat and the bike was running with normal temperatures before teardown I'd use it again, there isn't much that can go wrong with them and a new one is probably just as likely to fail as an old one. At least you know the old one worked, if the bike warmed up okay and didn't overheat. Save a buck for more gas!
