tighten scroll wheels

is there anyone who knows how i can tighten the scroll wheels of my K5?

I explain:

I always work in Manual mode and I regularly change settings because I undeliberately move the backside or frontside scroll wheel.
The least pressure moves the scroll wheels. I would like to find a way to tighten them in such a way that one needs apply more pressure before the wheels make a click.

How can I do this?

I don't think it's really possible without compromising the original design.
