What is the purpose of this plastic plate in the Mikuni TMX38X? Part# 13271-0021. The carb in my 04 KX 125 doesn't have it. Is it some sort of baffle so the fuel doesn't slosh around?

Been having an issue with the bike bogging when blipping the throttle in the air. I'm thinking it's due to that baffle missing out of my carb. Lowering the float helped a bit, but it still happens. Was the intention of that baffle to mitigate an issue like this?

Pretty much, without it, fuel sloshes around too much.
