Subscribe to the PreviewMouseLeftButtonDown event of RadGridView. In the event handler, check if the mouse is over a ScrollBar's RepeatButton with x:Name set to "PageUp" or "PageDown". In this case, handle the event which will cancel the scrolling and use the ScrollViewer's ScrollToHorizontalOffset method to scroll manually.

The following example shows how to implement this for the horizontal ScrollBar, but you can use this approach also for the vertical one.

private void RadGridView_PreviewMouseLeftButtonDown(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e) 
    var originalSourceEl = e.OriginalSource as FrameworkElement; 
    var repeatButton = originalSourceEl.ParentOfType<RepeatButton>(); 
    var scrollBar = repeatButton.ParentOfType<ScrollBar>(); 
    var grid = sender as RadGridView; 
    // Handle only the case when the horizontal scrollbar is clicked 
    if(repeatButton != null && scrollBar != null && scrollBar.Name == "PART_HorizontalScrollBar") 
        var scrollViewer = grid.ChildrenOfType<GridViewScrollViewer>().FirstOrDefault(); 
        // You can calculate the exact amount to scroll depending on the scenario            
        var amountToScroll = 30; 
        if (repeatButton.Name == "PageUp") 
            scrollViewer.ScrollToHorizontalOffset(scrollViewer.HorizontalOffset + amountToScroll); 
            e.Handled = true; 
        if(repeatButton.Name == "PageDown") 
            scrollViewer.ScrollToHorizontalOffset(scrollViewer.HorizontalOffset - amountToScroll); 
            e.Handled = true;
