While riding, I thought the fender had fallen down, turned out to be the fork brace. All 4 screws had backed out over time.

Two questions,

is the brace still considered a worthwhile accessory?

second, I've seen re-install videos where the bike is on the center stand, and in one, they loosened the pinch bolt only, one they did nothing, and one, pinch bolt, axle and triple tree bolts, all loosened and/or adjusted

So besides blue locktite, what is considered a good basic procedure for installing a fork brace?

Not a bad idea to check the bike once in awhile

Yes, most of us consider it worthwhile. I have never used loctite on mine and it has not come loose even on many miles off road. I don't see a problem with Blue loctite though if you want to use it.

Most of the time loosing everything else up is not needed. But if you experience a decel wobble it's the first thing to do to make sure everything on the forks is aligned properly.
