Today I attempted a clutch change on my '14 800XC, but I've hit an issue I don't understand. With everything reassembled, there is no resistance on the clutch handle. The clutch arm by the cover is rotating back and forth, but there is no pressure from the clutch assembly. After staring at the thing for a couple hours, I'm assuming the pull-rod (or "clutch lifter piece" according to bike bandit) isn't actually disengaging the clutch by pushing on the pressure plate. I have tried reassembling this thing a hundred times to make sure it's right to no avail. The pressure plate bearing looks fine. The pull-rod rotates freely and has free-play to move in and out. Perhaps it has too much in-and-out free play, but the only thing that would make this different from before is the thickness of the clutch pack, which I have measured at almost exactly 42.00mm.
Turns out I'm a bit of an idiot. Apparently one of the discs has a slightly larger inner diameter, and that's supposed to be the inner plate. The larger diameter is so that it doesn't touch the washer and Belleville spring. Since I had the wrong disc in first, it was pushing the whole clutch pack out too far.
Oh well, we all gotta learn somehow! Thanks for the help everyone.
