When you're playing the keystation you're playing Logic's virtual instruments, correct?
When you're playing the MM6 are you using virtual instruments? Or are you speaking of the MM6's internal synth sounds?

Yes, I am using Logic's virtual instruments on the MM6, just like with the Keystation. I am using the MM6 merely as as keyboard controller with no thought or interest in its own instruments. Thanks.

The only thing I can think of is with the Yamaha driver installed some of the keyboard controls (like the master volume) may be active for the virtual instruments, the other 4 knobs on the front panel may be active as well.
I think that keyboard has a sensitivity setting but not sure if that's only for internal sounds or if it affects MIDI as well.

Thank you for your input. I will think about what you said

Mark, over on the left is the Inspector.. to see if it's related to keyboard response, raise the velocity number.

Changes I make in the inspector have no effect - not velocity, mute, transpose. Except...
Then I tried from another, older MacBook and it did bring the volume up, and the other settings changed the sound too.
So I tried again with my new MacBook. First I connected to the other USB port. It worked! So Itried with the original USB port and it worked too.
I had thought of this before but I tried but was unable to enter values the fields. I didn't realize until your suggestion that I need to double click the field to activate it.
Pancenter, from the Great Southwest Desert, thank you so much for taking the time to help me.

No problem Mark.
Your Yamaha Keyboard has a Utility setting for "Touch Sensitivity" it's possible this is set so the keyboard is sending out low velocity data. You never would've noticed this when playing just the keyboard because you can turn the output volume up. Anyway.. it's possible that is the problem.
You should also be able to Click then Drag the mouse on those settings to change them.
The main manual is here, peruse at your leisure.
