Harley-Davidson is recalling nearly 178,000 motorcycles in the U.S. because they can get stuck in gear due to a clutch problem.
    
The recall covers 26 models from the 2017 and 2018 model years.
    
Documents posted Tuesday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say clutches can leak fluid internally, making it so the clutch doesn't have enough lift to disengage the bikes from gears. The safety agency says that can cause riders to lose control and increase the risk of a crash.

Earlier this year, Harley recalled more than 30 models from the 2008 through 2011 model years due to brake issues.
