TTR 125 Carb Question

Took the carb bowl off to clean out the pilot jet. The plate/baffle (#38 in pic) in the attached pic has me scratching my head. The diagram essentially shows that it is attached between the main jet and the needle jet. Pictures seem to indicate that the main jet holds it in place.

However the plate/baffle slides easily over the main jet and needle jet since they are the same outside diameter. Nothing appears to hold it in place. When I removed the bowl it just fell out of the bottom. How is this thing supposed to attach?

It should just slide over the main jet like you stated your's does with just a little resistance. On my DRZ125 (very similar carb... most parts interchange) and my buddies TTR125, they are both pretty sloppy and we ended up just leaving it off of his carb with no ill effects.

Yeah I can't imagine this thing staying in place at all. Maybe I'll just leave it off and see how it goes. Any idea what it's purpose is?

It's a slosh baffle to help keep the mainjet from sucking air on rough terrain and jumping.

Well that sounds important. I really don't see how it can be worn out but it simply slides on and off with no resistance. That can't be normal or the act of loading the bike on a trailer would knock it loose.

Are you sure the float-bowl doesn't hold it up?

I thought the same but the bowl would come into contact with the main jet long before it hit the baffle.

Any other thoughts before I put it all back together?

I have a ttr 125 and that is just how they are, the bowl holds it in place.
