Level differences when using a transverter on FT-897

I am running WSPR on 4metres using a 4m to 10m transverter to a Yaesu FT-897D. If I set the audio levels up for the FT-897 on the 28MHz band, it all runs well, but displays the 28MHz frequency band.

There is an option on the FT-897 to change the display to show the true operating frequency (i.e 70MHz band), using 'XVTR SEL' in the menu, however, if I select this, the input Tx audio levels are all wrong (way too low) when I expected them to remain the same.

Anyone experienced this and have any idea why?
