You can either filter on whatever you like, for example on the frame numbers, and save the partial file by using the "Displayed" radiobutton in the save dialog.

Or use the command line tool editcap (installed in the wireshark directory) to slice your file into smaller files, for example:

editcap -c 7000 <infile> <outfile>

You'll still have various file sizes depending on the size of the frames, but it should do.
