"I'd rather avoid shipping on an already spendy single item."
Not sure about this, but I think Van had a deal with K&N, where they made the special size filter for the FABs, so you may be able to buy them direct from K&N but I think you will have troble finding them locally.
Do what I do.
Just order more stuff that you will need later, to spread the cost of shipping out. You can always buy more stuff from Vans....
