Accepted Answer

Alternatively, there's a few entries in PDF fixups (Production/Preflight) to Remove Layers; the best for your question is this:

View > Tools > Print Production (Open) Hit Preflight Under the Profiles tab (top left), hit the little spanner/wrench icon in the top row. Double click [Remove layer with specified name] You'll be prompted for the name of the layer you wish to delete, and then a location to save your new PDF.
